Accuracy of Equations Predicting the Phyllochron of Wheat

  title={Accuracy of Equations Predicting the Phyllochron of Wheat},
  author={Gregory S. McMaster and Wally W. Wilhelm},
Predicting the rate of leaf appearance, or phyllochron, aids in understanding and modeling grass development and growth. Nine equations predicting the phyllochron of wheat (Tria'cum aesfivurn L.) were evaluated using field data from a variety of locations, cultivars, and management practices. Each equation is referred to by the last name of the first author; if there is more than one equation by the first author, additional descriptors were included. The BAKER and KIRBY equations predict the… CONTINUE READING
