The SunScan Canopy Analysis System makes fast accurate measurements of photosynthetically active radiation (PAR) in plant canopies. It also calculates leaf area index (LAI) and provides direct display of fractional interception readings.
SunScan data provides valuable information about plant growth and biomass production, and is essential in work such as comparative crop studies – for separating out the effects of cultivar and treatment. The system is particularly well suited to low regular canopies (as found in many agricultural crops).
Our new explainer video highlights the SunScan’s unique features and shows how it works. You can view it on the SunScan System web page.
