Model description

This 3-D model of paprika (Capsicum annuum L.) is built to estimate the canopy photosynthesis. This model simulates the intercepted irradiation of the canopy using 3D ray-tracing and photosynthesis capacity in each layer. The 3D architecture of the paprika is reconstructed using software (Houdini FX, FX, Canada). The light curves and A/Ci curve of each layer are measured to parametrize the Farquhar, von Caemmerer, and Berry (FvCB) model. With the intercepted irradiation data and photosynthetic parameters of each layer, the values of an entire plant's photosynthesis rate are estimated by integrating the calculated photosynthesis rate at each layer.
