Abstract

Based on the functional-structural plant model GreenLab, a common plant category tomato was selected as a test case in order to analyze the impact of plant density on the yield. A yield optimization model was set up based on minimum ripe fruit weight constraints, fruit weight serve as the objective function for the bound-constrained optimization problem. Particle Swarm Optimization (PSO) algorithm was applied for maximizing the crop production, which will provide a theoretical reference for agronomy measures based on plant spacing.
