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.
