In many cases evaluation of chlorophyll and nitrogen content in plants need to destructive methods, more time and organic solvents. Application of chlorophyll meters save time and resources. The aim of this study was estimating of chlorophyll and nitrogen content in Asian pear leaves using non-destructive method and rapid quantification of chlorophyll by chlorophyll content meter (CCM-200). This study was conducted on 8 years old Asian pear trees during June 2008 in Tehran, Iran. To develop our regression model, the chlorophyll meter data were correlated with extracted chlorophyll and nitrogen content data obtained from DMSO and Kejeldal methods, respectively. The results showed that, there was positive and linear correlation between CCM-200 data and chlorophyll a (R²=0.7183), chlorophyll b (R²=0.8523), total chlorophyll (R²=0.90), and total nitrogen content (R²=0.76) in Asian pear leaves. Thus, it can be concluded that, CCM-200 can be used in order to predict both chlorophyll and nitrogen content in Asian pear leaves.

    • "Before discovery of SPAD 502; CCM-200 device was used by researchers. Leaf Ch and N is estimated by using CCM- 200 [20] is also time and resource saving technique. The regression models were developed with destructively measured parameters as the dependent variable and a parameter derived from CCM-200 as the independent variable (CCI) to "

    ABSTRACT: Chlorophyll and Nitrogen are related to each other. Estimating one will give content of other. Many techniques are invented to estimate these two. Colour Image processing technique is proving to be effective for the estimation of both. The Colour Image Processing technique gives faster and accurate output. In this paper, some of the techniques are reviewed and a method is proposed to estimate Chlorophyll and Nitrogen for Grape using Matlab. The function developed in this method shows the satisfactory correlation with both and gives coefficient of 0.7307 and-0.3 with RMSE of 0.05551 and 0.1302 for Ch and N, respectively. The Chlorophyll and Nitrogen estimated with above shows the average error of-0.38 and-1.08 percent for all samples. Also, the correlation coefficient for estimated values of Ch and N is 0.9426 and-0.7253, respectively.

    ABSTRACT: This study was conducted to determine effect of water stress on chlorophyll content and chlorophyll fluorescence parameter in young `Dezful’ olive trees. Three irrigation regimes (40% ETcrop, 65% ETcrop and 100% ETcrop) were used. After irrigation treatments were applied, some of biochemical parameters including chlorophyll a, b, total chlorophyll, chlorophyll fluorescence and also chlorophyll content index (C.C.I) were measured. Results of Analysis of variance showed that irrigation treatments had significant effect on chlorophyll a, total chlorophyll (chl a+b), C.C.I and Fv/Fm ratio. The amount of decreased chlorophyll a and total chlorophyll in plants were received 40% ETcrop were 51.55% and 46.86%, respectively, compared with 100% ETcrop.

    ABSTRACT: The purpose of this investigation was to determine the feasibility of using the chlorophyll content index (cci) from a ccm-200 unit as an estimator of the seasonal variation of leaf pigment [chlorophyll a (chla), chlorophyll b (chlb), and total chlorophyll (tchl = chla + chlb)] content for a range of mangrove species within a degraded environment of the mexican pacific. two seasons (dry and rainy) of measurements were made on six mangrove classes: healthy and dwarf Avicennia germinans (linnaeus) linnaeus, healthy and poor condition Rhizophora mangle linnaeus, and healthy and poor condition Laguncularia racemosa (linnaeus) c.f. gaertn. tests of leaf pigment contents from 360 cci readings (30 per class) indicated that each equation was a valid predictor of chla and tchl for all six mangrove classes during both seasons. however, there was a poorer fit (lower R2) for the three species in poor/dwarf condition during the rainy season. chla and tchl were statistically well correlated with all of the cci data; however, the correlating chlb were lower (R2 < 0.68) for all classes except dwarf condition A. germinans (R2 = 0.80). The strong relationship observed between the readings from the portable ccm-200 and the pigment content suggest that the handheld ccm-200 can be a portable cost-effective tool for quickly predicting chla and tchl content for a range of mangrove forests.
