Technical Abstract: Physically-based crop models developed to maximize readily accessible information and minimize internal empirical relationships have the potential to improve farm management, aid in near real-time crop monitoring, and provide more accurate yield predictions. In Maize-Sim, a biophysical corn model has been coupled to 2DSOIL, a two-dimensional soil process simulator, to simulate above- and below-ground growth and development of a corn plant. The objective of the research presented here is to model root activity and soil infiltration in and around a corn plant especially in response to nitrogen stress.
