English translation:the plant-growth system
Explanation:
In full, I'd suggest "the climatic model and the plant-growth system." Climatic models are a standard concept in botany (as well as in meteorology), but the plants are actually being cultivated, so "system" would be better. -- There's also "plant-cultivation method," so take your choice...

I found both ans helpful for orientation and finally have decided on 'plant growth model' as best fitting in. The prob with plantation is that its first meaning/connotation in English is that of a place, not of a process. It's unfortunate that points can't be distributed between ans, as invariably, more than one ans turns out to be useful. Thanks to both.
