Leaf area and specific leaf area (SLA) are important parameters in many agronomic and ecological processes, but can be difficult and expensive to measure. This study was made to test simplified methods of estimating pearl millet [Pennisetum glaucum (L.) R. Br.] leaf area and SLA. Leaf length, maximum width, area, and dry mass data were obtained 85 kg of acidic, P-deficient Betis sand (sandy, silicious, thermic Psammentic Paleustalf) and were treated with four P levels and two water treatments (stressed and nonstressed). Individual leaf area was estimated non-destructively with the following equations(...)
