Abstract

The CROPGRO crop growth model is adapted in order to analyze experimental data from a soybean (cv. Hoyt) experiment conducted at elevated CO2 levels (1200 micromol mol-1) at Kennedy Space Center, FL. The following adaptations to original CROPGRO produced model agreement with gas-exchange data: the input of square-wave temperature and photosynthetically active radiation (PAR) profiles; the input of the appropriate hydroponic substrate PAR albedo; modified biomass partitioning and developmental parameters; an increased leaf area expansion rate through the fifth vegetative node; a decreased specific leaf area after the fifth vegetative node; and an increased incident diffuse PAR fraction over typical field values. The model demonstrated here suggests that with continued development, modified CROPGRO will be a useful tool in the analysis and eventual optimization of legume production in bioregenerative life support systems.
