Plant Physiology

ASD systems are used to determine plant physiological status, including disease status, nutritional status related to nitrogen uptake and moisture balance. Plant canopy measurements or individual leaf measurements can be made using ASD spectrometers. A variety of analysis approaches have been used to determine relevant plant health indicators. Vegetative indices, multivariate predictive models and multivariate classification models all have been use with success. Spectral data can be obtained either under solar illumination or with artificial light sources. The flexibility of sample accessories provided by ASD systems allows researchers to collect data relevant to their projects.
