    Modelling lengths of cucumber internodes

    Light has tremendous effects on crop architecture and its quantity and quality affect internode lengths in cucumber (Cucumis sativus). Kahlen and Stützel make simplifications to a light quantity- and quality-sensitive model for predicting final internode length and show that for vertically trained cucumber plants, leaf area data can be substituted successfully for local light quality […] More
