Decagon LP-80 Ceptometer

 
Decagon LP-80 Ceptometer
 
  • Decagon LP-80 Ceptometer is a lightweight, portable, linear photosynthetically active radiation (PAR) sensor.
  • It lets you measure canopy PAR interception and calculate leaf area index (LAI) at any location within a plant or forest canopy. 
  • PAR data can be used with other climate data to estimate biomass production without destroying the crop.
  • PAR is also important in determining other canopy processes; such as radiation interception, energy conversion, momentum, gas exchange, precipitation interception, and evapotranspiration.
  • Uses radiation measurements and other parameters to accurately calculate leaf area index (LAI) non-destructively in real time, in the field.
