It is interesting to construct virtual crop model for virtual agriculture according to the rule of crop development. Experimenting on such plant with individual stem as cucumber in greenhouse, based on large numbers of experimental observation during the cucumber development, with the accumulated growth day as parameter, the morphological and physiological models could be obtained respectively. After introducing the way of virtual allocation of photoassimilates, defining the plant growth unit and its organs using the type seal technology, the regulated description models could be found which describing the plant growth changes including topological structure and organ morphology, then the virtual plant growth model could be constructed through information fusion and reconstruction process. The simulation results demonstrated that the presented method was feasible and effective in simulating plant growth, which also showed valuable evidences for dynamical control and prediction of outer environmental conditions suitable to crop development.
