Paper Abstract

Chlorophyll is important for crops. The chlorophyll concentration is commonly used as the principal symptom of senescence. The objective of this paper was to study the relationship between the chlorophyll concentration and the time after the leaves being separated from the canola to confirm the detached leaves' senescence rate. The chlorophyll meter (SPAD meter) has been used in chlorophyll concentration measurement of fruit trees, sugar maple leaves in forest, corn with varying color and so on. In the experiment, a Minolta SPAD-502 chlorophyll Meter was used for measuring the chlorophyll concentration after picking off the canola leaves for 0 hour, 5 hours, 15 hours, 25 hours and 40 hours, and 25 samples were measured. As a result, the leaf senescence rules were found by observing the changing curves of the leaves' SPAD values. The original detached canola leaves were divided into three kinds of samples, and a certain senescence rule was found for each kind of samples. The results could provide good methods support to delay leaf senescence.
