Building canopy retention into agdisp: Preliminary models and results

Schou, W.C.; Forster, W. Alison; Mercer, Geoffry; Teske, M.E.; Thistle, H.W.


AGDISP uses canopy structure and collection efficiency to model canopy interception but assumes droplets that intercept a leaf surface are retained at that point and do not bounce or shatter. This behavior is not the case for many plant species, particularly species that are moderately to very difficult to wet, for which canopy deposition would be overestimated with this assumption. This article summarizes the initial implementation of process-based models for spray droplet bounce and shatter...[Show more]
