Disentangling the Relationship in Health of Zea Mays Crop using Photochemical Reflectance Index and Nitrogen Reflectance Index

Determining the spatial variation of different plant factors throughout growing season will help to resolve stress factors within a field in a timely basis. Whereas the spectral characterizes help to estimate the proper photosynthesis process. This research shows that the nitrogen reflectance index (NRI) help to predict the nitrogen level of healthy and diseased plants and photochemical reflectance index (PRI) affects the leaf spectral absorption. These indices are calibrated under the

The spectral bands considered for the calculation of NRI are 700nm, 670nm, 570nm and for PRI spectral bands considered were 531nm, 570nm. Statistical values for PRI were calculated like R-Square (0.727), RMSE (0.267), P-value (2.787), standard error (2.979) and the statistical values for NRI were R-Square (4.223), RMSE (0.512), P-value (0.968), standard error(2.648).Linear regression was calculated for finding the relation between the data.
