Model description

The model simulates sugarcane growth and development using process-based algorithms including phenology, canopy development, tillering, biomass accumulation and partitioning, root growth, and water stress. State variables are updated using Euler integration with a one-day time step. The model is designed to simulate the entire plant, stalk and root biomass, sucrose concentration, plant phenology and other variables. It requires soil parameters that regulate the soil water balance (field capacity, wilting point, water saturation, and soil depth), daily weather variables (solar radiation, maximum and minimum temperatures, precipitation), and irrigation.
