A model for dynamic simulation of dry matter distribution between reproductive and vegetative plant parts and the distribution among individual fruit trusses in glasshouse tomato, is validated. The model is part of the crop growth model TOMSIM and is based on the hypothesis that dry matter distribution is regulated by the sink strengths of the plant organs, quantified by their potential growth rates, i.e. the growth rates at non-limiting assimilate supply. Within the plant, individual fruit… CONTINUE READING
