[Nondestructive determination of nitrate content in spinach leaves with visible-near infrared high spectra].

The objective of the present research was to study the potential of Vis-NIR (visible-near-infrared) high spectra for nondestructive determination of nitrate content in spinach leaves. Five different nitrogen treatments were carried out to achieve a wide range of nitrate content in spinach leaves. The leaf reflectance was measured between 350 to 2,500 nm… CONTINUE READING
