Abstract: Potato ground cover and spectral data were measured in the Columbia Basin during 1990 growing season. Three spectral models were correlated with ground cover; normalized difference, red ratio, and the first derivative of the spectral curve at 750 nm. All models were significant at the 99% level with normalized difference having the highest correlation followed by the first derivative model and then red ratio.
