In the present study, computer language DYNAMO was applied to build a dynamic model of rice growth processes on the basis of synthesizing past quantitative studies on photosynthesis, respiration, assimilate distribution, leaf area growth and organogenesis. The model is referred to as RIce growth CAlendar Model (RICAM). The dynamics of rice crop growth during the field growth period was simulated, and sensitivity to both radiation and temperature was analyzed.
