Model description

Dynamic and developmental root system model representing the dynamics of the 3D architecture.
Generic model, linked to soil properties and provision of biomass by the shoot system. Simple model with only 20 input parameters.

Some case studies

Merged with other models, like Min3P, Florsys and STICS (see Gérard et al. 2017:
