Abstract

Estimates of leaf water potential made with the Campbell-Brewster hydraulic press correlated well with estimates of tiller water potential obtained with a commercial pressure chamber. The advantages of the hydraulic press for estimates of leaf water potential in tropical grasses are discussed.
