Pedersen, Anders (2007) Simulating Root Density Dynamics and Nitrogen Uptake – Can a Simple Approach be Sufficient? Speech at: 37th Annual Biological Systems Simulation Conference, Holiday Inn, College Park, Maryland USA, 17-19 april.
The modeling of root growth in many plant–soil models is simple and with few possibilities to adapt simulated root proliferation and depth distribution to that actually found with different crop species. Here we propose a root model, developed to describe root growth, root density and nitrogen uptake. The model focuses on annual crops, and attempts to model root growth of different crop species and row crops and its significance for nitrogen uptake from different parts of the soil volume.
