CRootBox is a fast and flexible functional-structural root model that is based on state-of-the-art computational science methods. The focus of CRootBox is the simulation of different types of root architecture, and to provide a generic interface for coupling with arbitrary soil/environmental models, e.g., in order to determine the impact of specific root architectures on function. CRootBox is based on the earlier RootBox code that had been implemented in Matlab, but now has an object oriented implementation which is more flexible and faster so that field-scale modelling became feasible.
