Evaluation of a photon tracing model and virtual plants to simulate light distribution within a canopy in a growth chamber
Keywords: photon tracing model, growth chamber, light phylloclimate, plant architecture
AbstractRadiance distribution in a growth chamber is anisotropic. Our objective is to evaluate the accuracy of light simulations in a rose canopy grown in a growth chamber using virtual plants and a photon tracing model dedicated to growth chambers. The question of the scale at which the system reproduces the observed variability is specifically addressed.
