Dynamic Simulation on Canopy Light Distribution and Dry Matter Accumulation of Natural Colored Cotton in Alar Reclamation Area of Xinjiang

Zhenqi Fan, Lixin Zhang
Abstract—Based on Ross’s theory of optical radiation transmission and full consideration of influences of vertical distribution of canopy leaf area and leaf inclination angle distribution of colored cotton on the light distribution, the Gaussian 5-point distance was used to divide the canopy into 5 layers on basis of the leaf area index. The leaf inclination angle on each layer was divided into 6 equal parts by 15°. The types of radiation in canopy, spatial distribution of light radiation, as well as diurnal variation with solar hour angles were quantified in detail. After comprehensively considering influences of temperature, physiological age and other factors on photosynthesis and respiration, the canopy light distribution, photosynthetic production and dry matter accumulation of colored cotton were simulated with strong mechanistic and physiological & ecological significance. The colored cotton samples sown on April 16, 2019 were used to verify the model. The RMSEs of simulated and measured canopy PAR values at Beijing time 10:00, 12:00, 14:00 and 16:00 on July 30 were 58.2, 64.1, 43.4 and 39.7 µmol•m-2•s-1, respectively. The RMSE of simulated and observed values of the dry matter accumulation above ground was 412.6 kgDM•hm-2, reflecting the good predictability of the model.

Index Terms—Canopy light distribution, colored cotton, dry matter accumulation, extinction coefficient, photosynthetic production.
