    Research output: Contribution to journalArticleAcademicpeer-review


    A growth model for heated glasshouse tomatoes is described in detail. A mechanistic approach is used so that both development and real growth are distinguished for both crop and fruit. Some results of the growth model as part of a bio-economic model are given. Of the different phsyiological processes, the rate of photosynthesis showed the largest influence on productivity. Other regarded aspects are: rate of flowering and maturing, tomato type, intercropping and planting date.
