In this video we made a brief how to measure leaf area with a smartphone and a mobile application Petiole. It clear shows that specific leaf area measurement is not a problem and even to measure total leaf area is not an issue – less than in a minute with nothing special. Only Petiole and its Petiole kit (measuring stand and calibration pad) and three leaves of olive tree.

There are three main stages of leaf area measurement using a smartphone.

Це фото – своєрідне вітання українським листочкам, які скоро з’являться з-під снігу. А зараз у нас – анонс. Точніше, прості відповіді на справді складні практичні питання в сільському господарстві та екології. Звісно, з Петіолем :).

Якщо ви коли-небудь пробували виміряти площу листя пшениці, сої чи яблуні, будь ласка, поділіться вашим досвідом з нами! Думаємо, що ви нам розкажете як “легко”було зробити поверхню цих листків рівною, без вигинів та зайвої кучерявості. Виходячи з нашого досвіду, це майже неможливо, особливо у пшениці та рисі, на ранній стадії вегетації!

Народні умільці придумали багато лайфхаків, як приклеїти ці листочки або зробити так, щоб вони якось трималися поверхні на час вимірювання. Однак, після таких маніпуляцій ці листочки вже ні на що не здатні, не кажучи вже про подальші вимірювання та дослідження.

Тому ми винайшли елегантне рішення для цієї проблеми. Оце наше рішення може бути застосоване для майже будь-якого типу листя (злаки, фрукти або овочі).

It was interesting and challenging way but we have gone it. Finally, we have completely new Petiole.LeafArea, an Android based mobile application for biology, plant physiology, agriculture chemistry and ecology. We re-write it from scratch. Now Petiole measures not only the specific leaf area of an individual plant leaf but can measure total leaf area. Petiole will help to measure specific leaf area and total plant leaf area in taps, without any ImageJ or leaf area scanners.

Also, this version includes behind the scenes improvements to Petiole app stability and stamps of our pesky bugs.

By the way, our Petiole.LeafArea is absolutely FREE now. Don’t forget to take advantage of this.
