- Experiments conducted in two different years at two different locations have shown that grain yield of a fall-planted spring wheat can be adequately estimted from the minimum albedo of the crop just prior to grain ripening. The predictive relationship appears to be independent of any other factor, as long as complete ground cover is achieved.
