DE LA CASA, Antonio et al. Use of Leaf Area Index and Ground Cover to Estimate Intercepted Radiation in Potato. Agric. Téc. [online]. 2007, vol.67, n.1, pp.78-85. ISSN 0365-2807.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0365-28072007000100010.

Since there is no information in the green belt of Córdoba, Argentine, about the use of instruments to measure leaf area index (IAF) through light interception in potato crop (Solanum tuberosum L.), a study was developed with the objectives of: i) evaluating the employment and capacity of an optic instrument to determine IAF in a potato crop; ii) verifying IAF and ground cover (%C) using alternative measurements of crop canopy development to estimate intercepted radiation (fAPAR). The measurements were carried out during 2005 (from February 4 to June 1), in a plantation density experiment near Córdoba (31º30' S lat, 64º08' W long, 402 m.a.s.l.), with three treatments, in pl m-2: 6.0 ± 0.6 (TDC); 3.9 ± 0.2 (TDB) and 7.9 ± 0.7 (TDA). IAF was estimated by means of an optic instrument (ceptometer) and ground cover (%C) through digital pictures. The IAF values measured with the ceptometer were compared with photogrametric determinations obtaining an acceptable correlation (R2 = 0.80; P < 0.01). The relationship between IAF and fAPAR remained uniform, in the sense of comparing plantation densities, likewise during different moments of the cycle. Until the crop reaches maximum covering, the relationship between %C and fAPAR was linear, with a highly significant (R2 = 0.93; P < 0.01) coefficient of adjustment, although it shifts slightly away from a 1:1 relationship.

Palabras clave : potato; plant density; ground cover; intercepted radiation.
