Access from EThOS:
Measurements were made of the area of individual leaves in two field bean crops. Detailed measurements of temperature and radiation were made. The reflection and transmission of solar radiation by the crop, and the relationship between net and solar radiation were examined. Comparisons were made of screen and crop temperatures. Growth analysis showed that the main difference between the crops was in the rate of leaf growth, with higher specific leaf area in the warmer season. During early vegetative growth, daily relative leaf growth rate was correlated with temperature but not with radiation.
