[R] help for xvalid with external data

Hi, as usual I have a problem with R functions!

I formulated a geostatistical model with geoR.

I decided to include some covariates in my model, and I estimated all the parameters (linear model and covariance function parameters) by the likfit function as follows:  

mod1<-likfit(geodata, ini=varfitmodel, trend=~cov1 +cov2, lambda=0.5, cov.model="matern",kappa=0.5)  

Once I obtained my best model, I'd like to validate it using an external dataset by using the function xvalid.  

First of all, I transformed the external dataset in a geodata object, as usual, named


,where also covariates were included.

Then I tried the following syntax:  

Validation<-xvalid(geodata, model=mod1,
locations.xvalid=validation_data$coords, data.xvalid= validation_data$data)  

Bur R says:

Trend elements not found.  

My question is: how can I specify the trend structure within the xvalid function?

Thank a lot
