Abstract: Method for tealeaves quality estimation through measurements of Degree of Polarization: DP, Leaf Area Index: LAI, Photosynthesis Available Radiance: PAR and Normalized Difference Vegetation Index: NDVI for characterization of tealeaves is proposed. The method allows estimations of PAR, NDVI, Grow Index: GI by using measured Degree of Polarization: DP of tealeaves. Through experiments at the tea farm areas, it is found that the proposed method is validated. Also, the method is validated through Monte Carlo Ray Tracing: MCRT simulations for discrimination between prolate and oblate shapes of tealeaves. In accordance with growing tealeaves, prolate shape of tealeaves changes their shape to oblate shape. Therefore, growing stage can be estimated with DP measurements.
