The development of plants depends on the photoperiod length, light intensity, temperature, and length of light day integral. The reaction of a plant to the day length or daily light integral can depend on both the range of studied light intensities and photoperiod. Based on the data concerning the effects of light and thermal integrals on the developmental rate of plants of different photoperiodic groups, a photothermal model of plant development was proposed. The model was used to calculate the lengths of optimal photoperiods and ranges of daily temperature gradients ensuring the highest developmental rate of some plants, such as soybean, wheat, cucumber, and barley.
