  3. Define the plant parameters: Approximate height: 9,8m.
  4. From the Row's tab choose the following row parameters::
    • Separation: 3,5m

Repeat the process and insert 3 more rows, using the same plant species and row parameters, and picking the curves #2, #3 and #4 shown in Fig 2. Change the Distance to axis to 2m.

Edit a plant row

Once the plant row has been created we can change the parameters related to the row and the plant species used from the Lands Edit Panel laEditPanel.

Under the Plant's tab, there is the Natural variation option that when enabled it sets a random height variation to plant species in the row.


See the result in Fig 3.
