Measure leaf area manually at your lab or in a field. Manage each leaf area measurement to find total leaf area and specific leaf area (SLA) without Internet and equipment.
Measure specific leaf area faster to make swifter decisions. Petiole gives you information how to calculate leaf area so you can interpret it quickly and act on.
Forget about plant leaf area meter and ImageJ. Or other leaf area measurement software. Petiole makes leaf area calculation and saves your time and finance.
Step 2. Launch this mobile application
Step 4. Put a leaf (or leaves) in front of a camera
Step 5. Point to the leaf and look at leaf area calculation in the screen.
Step 6 (optional). Add the data of specific leaf measurement into leaf area count to calculate total leaf area.

I enjoyed using Petiole - it is very intuitive and gave me nice, accurate leaf area measurements. It is always nice when you have technical solutions that work really well! However, my research has shifted directions. I am working much less with leaf-level physiological measurements, and more with large-scale, satellite-based measurements. There are some opportunities I see to use Petiole again - it looks like leaf mass per area (LMA) may drive some of the signal in near-infrared reflectance.
We are always very pleased to read your messages.
Our team is completely happy to help you with leaf area measurement in the most effective manner. We are waiting for any your question about leaf area measurement and related topics.
We have hands-on experience how to measure leaf area with graph paper, ImageJ and different tricks in Adobe Photoshop. We know about leaf area meters and other equipment for plant scientists in order to get the most accurate data about plant's leaf area.
Hence, we created this mobile application that is affordable for everyone leaf area meter in a smartphone. We tried to explain here as much as possible. But we invite you also to our educational channels in our Dark Green Singularity blog and Youtube as well as our Twitter and Facebook.
Let's make leaf area measurement easy and boost your plant science research!
