ORACLE on station: caracterisation of sorghum

Overview

This is within the frame of the ORACLE project ( Optimisation des rotations et associations céréales légumineuses). We want to caracterise 50 sorghum varieties. In this project we will measure the photosynthesis efficiency in addition to other parameters directly collected in the field (LAI, phenology, plant height, biomass, N uptake) or on the lab ( rhizobium activity, roots growth...).

Protocols

Leaf Photosynthesis MultispeQ V1.0

Summary

Measures many photosynthesis-related parameters in <15 seconds, including:

  • Chlorophll Fluorescence: Phi2, PhiNPQ, PhiNO, NPQt, qL, LEF
  • Relative Chlorophyll: SPAD
  • Proton Motive Force: ECSt, vH+, gH+
  • Absorbance at: 450, 535, 605, 650, 730, 850, 880, and 940nm.
  • Leaf Thickness (in mm), angle, and cardinal direct...
