- ... There is growing interest in employing hand-held radiometry as a nondestructive research tool in lieu of or support of more tedious vegetation measurements. The objective of this study was to evaluate such techniques on corn. The spectral radiances from corn plots 1.8 m in diameter were measured using a three-band radiometer elevated 3.7 m above the ground. The three spectral bands used correspond ...
