A mathematical model for water and nutrient uptake by plant root systems.

Abstract:

This article deals with modelling the simultaneous uptake of water and highly buffered nutrient, such as phosphate, by root branching structures from partially saturated soil. We use the simultaneous water and nutrient uptake model to investigate the effect that water movement has on nutrient uptake. With the aid of this model we are also able to show that the previous models by Barber and Tinker and Nye systematically underestimated the phosphate uptake, due to the oversimplified approach in...
