Measurements of plant parameters as indicators of harvest ability of burley tobacco
Agricultural Engineering, USDA, ARS, USA; Department Agricultural Engineering, University of Kentucky, Lexington, Kentucky USA
Studies were made on the brittleness index (harvestability) of tobacco as related to plant-water potential, critical radius of curvature, and moisture content. Each of these parameters offers a possibility for predicting harvestability and for...
