Cereals, potato and glasshouse cut rose, representing monocot annuals, vegetative propagated dicot annual and woody perennials, have different structural development. ‘Bud break’, initiating tillering (monocots) and branching (dicots) is a key process determining plant structure. Plant population density is affecting bud break in each of these three species. The mechanisms explaining these observations and the application in models will be discussed, primarily carbon source : sink ratio and light quality (i.e. red : far red ratio.
