BACKGROUND AND AIMS Light interception is a key factor driving the functioning of wheat-pea intercrops. The sharing of light is related to the canopy structure, which results from the architectural parameters of the mixed species. In the present study, we characterized six contrasting pea genotypes and identified architectural parameters whose range of variability leads to various levels of light sharing within virtual wheat-pea mixtures. METHODOLOGY Virtual plants were derived from magnetic… CONTINUE READING
