Radiometric measurements and crop yield forecasting: some observations over millet and sorghum experimental plots in Mali


, : Radiometric measurements and crop yield forecasting: some observations over millet and sorghum experimental plots in Mali. Euro Abstracts, Section 1 26(1): 3

Radiometric measurements, phenological observations and leaf measurements were taken every 7-10 days on 45 plots of 5 cultivars of millet and sorghum at Sotuba, Mali in the 1985 wet season. The grain:straw ratio varied widely and was less sensitive to species/cultivar differences than to environment.
