    A software package to simulate daily field crop canopy photosynthesis

    How can we improve crops in the future? One method would be to improve the photosynthesis process in crops, to increase productivity from the same plants. However, there isn’t a lot of research connecting leaf-level photosynthetic manipulation and crop performance. A new software package developed by Wu et al. produces a model of diurnal crop […] More

    A new methodology to simplify the recalibration of FSP models

    Functional–structural plant models (FSPM) define the interactions between the plants and their environment at organ to plant scale. However, the high level of description of the structure or model mechanisms makes this type of model very complex and hard to calibrate. Mathieu et al. propose a two-step method to facilitate the calibration process based on […] More
