What's A Petiole...?
What exactly is the difference between a leaf area meter and Petiole Pro?
Petiole Pro is a mobile application to calculate canopy cover in a smartphone for scientist and farmers
Yes, Petiole Pro was created so that smart people like you, who don't have expensive equipment, can easily measure canopy cover using only camera on a smartphone, to get more data for your experiment! Let us show you how it works:
1️⃣ Install the app and take smartphone with you to the field or lab. Yes, the app works without internet connection!
2️⃣ Fix smartphone on needed height, add the first sample and continue to add as many sample images of your crop as you need.
3️⃣ When the image of you crop will not have any black pixels on it, save them measurement in the app. Also, you can share your measurements with your collaborators.
Watch Demo:
In less than 10 minutes, you can measure what would have taken you hours to do...

"We used #petiole in today's land measurements. It has given us great convenience. It provided ease of measurement in the field instead of removing the plants from the soil and carrying them to the laboratory. Many thanks to the team that made the #petiole application."

— Ahmet SAY, Erciyes University Research Assistant

Here are a few other FAQs we get a lot:

What information about my crop can I get with Canopy Cover module of Petiole Pro?

Measurement of Canopy Cover (Fractional Vegetation Cover, FVC) is important for many reasons. The canopy can be affected by the health of a plant, which in turn is affected by nutrition, water access, disease, pest infestations, and stress.

Do I need to measure canopy cover?

If you work with complex plants and wish to know the progress of their growth then Canopy Cover can help to get the non-destructive measurement of plant growth.

Do I need to calibrate camera for Canopy Cover measurement?

No, you don't. Canopy Cover will be measured automatically on the height which you have. However, to have relationship between your measurements, it's better to measure Canopy Cover from the same height each time. For example, from the level of your eyes or shoulders.

What does Canopy Cover indicate?

Canopy cover as a stand-alone indicator measures the proportion of the ground floor covered by the vertical projection of green biomass.
