First paragraph. The objective of crop growth modeling is to predict the accumulation of dry matter by a field of plants. Plant growth is determined by genetics and environment. This chapter primarily deals with the influence of environment; for our purposes, the genetic potential of the plant is a given.(Download PDF) (Export to EndNotes)
