Leaf area index (LAI) is important for light interception, radiation-use efficiency (RUE), and plant growth; however, determination of LAI requires substantial capital investment, often not available in developing countries. On the assumption that there is a sufficiently close relationship between leaf area (LA) and leaf dry weight (LDW) and possibly total biomass (TBM), it should be possible to estimate IA from these parameters. Therefore, eight peanut (Arachis hypogaea L.) cultivars varying… CONTINUE READING
