Quantitative data on the rate of development of a sugarcane crop show that the pattern follows that of the logistic curve of plant growth. In this, a period of fast growth changes to one of slow growth at a defined point known as the point of inflection. Data from measurements made at the Sugar Corporation of Malawi have shown that a formula equating the rate of growth with that of an autocatalytic chemical reaction can be applied, by means of which the final growth is predicted by calculation…

SOME PHYSIOLOGICAL FACTORS AFFECTING THE OPTIMUM AGE AND SEASON FOR HARVESTING SUGARCANE
TLDR
The effects of rate of canopy development, moderate water stress, photosynthesis, respiration, and dry matter distri­ bution have been integrated by means of a computer model which provided an indication of how various harvest options may affect economic returns.
PROGRAM FOR SIMULATING YIELDS OF CRUSHING AND HARVESTING OPERATIONS
A computerised model for analysing and predicting the cane crop for a given mill area is described. The starting point of the model is the age distribution of the present areas under cane. The
Dissecting spatiotemporal biomass accumulation in barley under different water regimes using high-throughput image analysis.
TLDR
It is found that experiments, treatments, genotypes and genotype by environment interaction (G × E), growth model-derived maximum vegetative biomass, inflection point, and regrowth rate can be characterized at any time point by certain digital traits.
Rates of bark formation on surfaces of saguaro cacti (Carnegiea gigantea)1, 2
TLDR
Twenty-one species of tall, long-lived columnar cactus species show extensive bark coverage (epidermal browning) in the Americas and controlled experiments with supplemental UV-B irradiation show the initial stages of bark coverage, suggesting that sunlight-induced bark coverage leads to premature morbidity and mortality.
