2.Plant growth model

In the watering model, we assume that the soil is completely dry before the original watering, and the weight of all the watering is 100%, we use the difference between the first two columns of the value as the difference in moisture content. Then look at the daily low-frequency watering state after the decline in humidity, through a review of the literature, get the tobacco seedling probably such as 70% for the best humidity state for the best desired environment.

To mathematically model and analyze the growth of a plant, we decided to use a mathematical tool, such as MATLAB, to create a mathematical model. In this model, the relationship between changes in the weight of the plant and factors such as watering frequency and humidity can be considered.

The example code will calculate the average daily humidity loss rate. Now you can use this data to analyse the best humidity conditions and when you should water. The above code will plot the curve of the average humidity loss rate and mark the red dots on the dates when watering is needed. By setting a watering threshold, you can determine when you need to water based on the change in the Average Moisture Loss Rate.

Subsequently, we have added the parameter of light as a new input to the model, and the model results are shown below:

Below is a simple MATLAB code example for analyzing the data you provided and creating a basic model:

The first draft of the MATLAB code was written by Student Alex with the help of Mr. WangXu.
