Paper Abstract

The objective of this paper is to discuss the action of derivative spectra of corn in determining spectral bands that are best suited for characterizing corn agronomic parameters. The data for this study comes from filed and indoor reflectance measurements of corn by a ASD FieldSpec Pro FR. Observed corn characteristics included leaf area index, aboveground fresh biomass chlorophyll concentration and carotenoid concentration. The study shows that the derivative spectra can determine some characteristic wavelength of corn and eliminate the influence of soil background in some degree. Leaf area index, above-ground biomass, chlorophyll concentration and carotenoid concentration were strongly correlative to the red edge parameters which derive from derivative spectra of corn (the position of red edgeλred, the slope of red edge Dred and the area of red edge Sred). A strong relationship with corn characteristics is located in specific narrow bands in the longer wavelength portion of red (710nm to 740nm). The study concludes it is feasible for the derivative spectra of corn to determine its some agronomic parameters.
