LAI-2000 Plant Canopy Analyzer

 

 
LAI-2000 Plant Canopy Analyzer
 
  Instrument Details  
 
Make : LI-COR USA
Model : LAI-2000
Specification : Resolution: 1.0 mm2.
 

 
  Working Principles   
 

        Non-destructive method of leaf area measurements. The LAI-2000 calculates Leaf Area Index and other canopy structure attributes from radiation measurements made with a “fish eye” optical sensor. Measurements made above and below the canopy are used to determine canopy light interception at five angles, from which LAI is computed using a model of radiative transfer in vegetative canopies.

 
 
  Applications   
     On-site evaluation of LAI data in a variety of canopy types.
  User Instructions   
  1. Connect an LAI-2050 sensor to the X connector. The X connector is on your left as you view the front panel keypad and display and the Y connector is on your right.
  2. Try to avoid direct sun and take measurements at dawn or dusk or during a cloudy day.
  3. Take observation on 3 randomly selected plants or spots per plot and flag them.
  4. Switch on the control unit and press log on button to create a new file. It will show the file reference number and ask for WHAT and WHERE.
  5. Take one above canopy and 3 below canopy observations at one spot. Use separate data sheet to record date, location, starting time, file number and sunlight conditions for your own reference.
  6. View results of the measurement in the field by pressing function FCT 27, which prompts for the number of file to be viewed.
