A 2D physically based framework is proposed to analyze the effect of a non-uniform water supply at the soil surface generated by rainfall interception and stemflow on soil-root water transport in the case of heterogeneous distribution of the roots in the soil profile. To model soil-root water transport, the root water potential of two plants placed in two adjacent rows was simulated so as to minimize the difference between the evaporative demand and the amount of water taken up by each plant.
