Crop modelling in fruit crops: A review

Author(s):
Susmita Das and Arti Sharma
Abstract:
Plant production systems are governed by site management and by biotic and abiotic factors. Studying and understanding the tree growth and development of fruit crops is a difficult endeavour. Crop models have long been powerful tools in unravelling physiological mechanisms that determine crop yield in relation to the environment. Models are used to estimate seasonal changes in quality traits as fruit size, dry matter, water content and the concentration of sugars and acids, which are very important for flavor and aroma. Different types of models are available which vary in parameters and precision. Use of crop models in fruit crops is relatively new. Available literature on fruit crop modelling has been reviewed here.
