A detailed description is given of a crop growth model for the single truss production system which can relate the total available photosynthetic photon fluence to both crop timing and crop yield. It produces a production schedule, allocates greenhouse growing space and predicts the quantity and value of plant yields for continuous tomato production. The current model has been tested and verified.
