Chlorophyll Analysis Using Vegetation Indices

Posted by: Scott Trimble
Sept. 14, 2020

Instruments like the VIS-NIR based CI-710 Miniature Leaf Spectrometer (CID Bio-Science) aid in non-destructive data collection and quantification of chlorophyll. Several vegetation indices can be used to analyze the spectral data collected by the spectrometer during the process. Chlorophyll content ...

How Leaf Reflectance Measures Plant Stress

Posted by: Scott Trimble
Aug. 27, 2020

Photochemical Reflectance Index (PRI) can be measured remotely to estimate several types of stress and nutrient deficiency in plants. It has been shown that PRI is an indicator of photosynthetic efficiency, which changes when plants face stress. Portable but accurate ...
