Abstract

An eight band spectral radiometer was used to measure the spectral composition of a solar radiation reflected from a sugar cane crop The fraction of light intercepted by the crop was measured with a ceptometer. The fraction of light intercepted by the crop was measured with a ceptometer. The ration of energy reflected in various wavebands was linearly correlated to the fractional light interception, one of the main determinants of crop growth. Thus, the measurement of spectral reflectance provides a useful way to predict dry matter production in crops.
