RICEPSM is a physiologically-based rice population model, which simulates the seasonal numbers and mass of roots, culms, leaf sheaths, leaf blades, panicle vegetative components, and grains for the main plants and tillers at 40 Degree-days (>100C) time step. The interface of RICEPSM enables us to analyze the relative importance of the various factors, both genetic and environmental, to select optimal timing of agronomic practices, and to test proposed management strategies.
