Fungicides as canopy management tools can help extend leaf area duration (LAD) - a measure of green leaf retention over time... "We don't talk about LAD very often because it's difficult to measure, but it is the number of square metres of green leaves there are on one square metre of ground over a period of time," Mr Poole said. ".. "If you think back to the idea of maintaining green leaf, you can actually use APSIM to generate some expected yields, and these yields correlate to an absolute level of LAD. You can then use APSIM to calculate the effect of losing 5 percent to 60 percent of that LAD after flowering (Table 1)...
