The portable chlorophyll (Chl) meter (CL-01, Hansatech) has been successfully used for a rapid and direct estimation of total Chl content in the leaves of some crops. We compared CL-01 meter readings (Chl value) and Chl contents in leaves of Zea mays, Cucumis sativus, Raphanus sativus, and Ceiba speciosa. Chl index was linearly and positively correlated to Chl content in all the species.
