A mathematical estimate of the leaf area index of Kentucky bluegrass turf


, : A mathematical estimate of the leaf area index of Kentucky bluegrass turf. Agronomy Abstracts 72nd annual meeting, American Society of Agronomy: 114

Although LAI is a useful parameter for describing plant stands, it is seldom measured in short grass because of the diminutive sizes of the plants. In this study the leaf area of a Kentucky bluegrass tiller in a 1.3-2.5 cm stand was estimated as the sum of 2 separate areas: the foliar area of the sheath axis and the area of the leaf blades. When this sum was multiplied by the tiller density and divided by the ground area, the LAI was estimated.
