    Notes: Summary Leaf area index (LAI) is widely used in many facets of potato (Solanum tuberosum L.) modelling but direct measurements have historically been difficult. This investigation tested the accuracy of a commercially available instrument (LI-COR LAI-2000) for measuring LAI non-destructively on a potato crop. Accurate estimates of LAI were difficult to obtain with small plots of≈1 m2. Results from larger field plots were extremely favourable and indicate that non-destructive measurements of LAI in situ can routinely be estimated within 5 to 10% of the destructively measured LAI. Six thinning tests performed on four potato cultivars produced average root mean square error measurements of LAI that ranged from 0.09 to 0.27.

    Notes: Summary The growth and duration of crop leaf area determines the amount of solar radiation intercepted by the canopy and therefore influences the extent of photosynthesis, evaporation, transpiration and final dry matter yield. The objective of this study was to develop cultivar specific relationships to estimate the daily leaf area index (LAI) for the potato crop (Solanum tuberosum L.) that included the effects of available soil water. The model is divided into three LAI growth stages, the durations of which are partially related to potato heat units (PHU). The LAI in the first stage is estimated from a cultivar specific leaf area-based radiation use efficiency index with a soil water reduction factor. The second stage involves the maintenance of a constant LAI with the duration related to both PHU and a soil water index that can accelerate senescence. The final stage includes a decrease in the LAI from a maximum to zero in response to a cultivar specific PHU accumulation. Model simulations compared favourably with independent LAI measurements obtained with a LI-COR plant canopy analyzer over two seasons.
