Abstract

Reflectance spectroscopy is a non-invasive technique, which can be performed in a real-time mode for studying pigment composition and content in plants in vivo. In this work reflectance spectra were measured in laboratory for the leaves of three tomato cultivars. Good correlation with analytically measured pigment concentration was achieved for (1) chlorophyll a concentration and reverse reflectance values at wavelength 600 nm for the direct leaf side, (2) anthocyanins concentration and reverse reflectance values at wavelength 550 nm for the reverse leaf side. Reflectance spectroscopy has an advantage over any analytical techniques in possibility to measure the pigment distribution between leaf sides.
