Most existing water and nutrient uptake models are based on the assumption that roots are evenly distributed in the soil volume. This assumption is not realistic for field conditions, and significantly alters water or nutrient uptake calculations. Therefore, development of models of root system growth that account for the spatial distribution of roots is necessary. The objective of this work was to test a three dimensional architectural model of the maize root system by comparing simulated… CONTINUE READING
