This study evaluates the influence of sun position on the reliability of LAI estimates provided by a ceptometer and proposes a measurement protocol for use of such instruments on vineyards under direct illumination. Methods and ResultsCeptometer readings at several sun elevation and azimuth angles were recorded in two fields. LAI estimated at different sun positions using several measurement protocols were then compared against destructive leaf area measurements.
