Dr John Newstead guides viewers through the main features of the SunScan system in our new video.
The SunScan plant canopy analyzer uses field measurements of photosynthetically active radiation (PAR) in crop canopies to provide valuable information about Leaf Area Index (LAI) and biomass production.
SunScan is optimised for low regular canopies such as most agricultural crops. The 1 metre probe permits rapid spatial averaging of large areas, and PAR mapping for non-uniform crops such as vineyards and orchards. With the unique BF5 reference PAR sensor, SunScan can be used effectively in a wide variety of weather conditions.
