Assessment of canopy growth and development for three wheat cultivars under different water and nitrogen regimes

Traits related to water productivity in dryland cropping interact in multiple ways to influence final grain yield. Crop modelling can be a useful tool to address the challenge of determining how to best combine region-specific traits and develop …

Dynamic monitoring of canopy structure by time serial photography of early stage growth of wheat

Early vigour is an important physiological trait to improve establishment, water-use efficiency and grain yield for wheat. Phenotyping large numbers of genotypes is challenging due to the fast growth and development of wheat seedlings. Several …

Improvement of the model capacity and assessment traits related with water use efficiency for wheat in Australia

Traits related with water productivity in dryland cropping interact in multiple ways to influence final grain yield, with traits being of different value across environments. In recent years, crop models have been demonstrated as a useful tool to …

Quantitative evaluation of influence of PROSTRATE GROWTH 1 gene on rice canopy structure based on three-dimensional structure model

The discovery and separation of the PROSTRATE GROWTH 1 gene has significantly contributed to reveal the molecular mechanism of rice evolution and has aided the study of the molecular basis of rice plant architecture. However, the influence of the …

Simplification of leaf surfaces from scanned data: Effects of two algorithms on leaf morphology

New technologies, such as three-dimensional (3D) laser scanning and stereo imaging, have recently been adopted for quantifying plant structure. The datasets collected using such technologies offer realistic representations of the morphological …

Assessment of the influence of global dimming on the photosynthetic production of rice based on three-dimensional modeling

Observations indicate that global radiation reaching the Earth’s surface has gradually decreased over the past several decades (i.e., the “global dimming” phenomenon), while the fraction of diffuse radiation in global radiation has increased. It has …

Assessment of the effects of leaf angle combinations on potential photosynthesis capacity of rice with 3-D models using high performance computing

Improving plant structure is pivotal for increasing the potential yield of crops. The aim of this paper was to evaluate the influence of leaf angle and leaf area index (LAI) on light interception efficiency and capacity of biomass production of rice …

Three-dimensional digitization in situ of rice canopies and virtual stratified-clipping method.

Objective: The aim of this paper was to explore a technology which can accurately reflect the three-dimensional (3D) canopy architecture of rice plants. Method: The 3D digitizing technology was used to measure the rice plant structure in situ at the …

Comparison of architecture among different cultivars of hybrid rice using spatial light model based on 3D digitizing

Modification of plant types (i.e. plant architecture) is an important strategy to enhance the yield potential of crops. The aims of this study were to specify rice plant types using 3-D modelling methodology. The architecture of three typical hybrid …
