Weight

The weight module has the following options:

  1. Clipping / Comparative Yield
  2. Double Sampling / Weight-Unit Sampling

1. Clipping / Comparative Yield

The Clipping / Comparative Yield modules are used for sampling protocols that call for both field and dry weight measures for clipped plant material. the module has the following input display:

The Clipping / Comparative Yield module has the following settings:

  • Specify quadrat height and width for reporting purposes. If using a circular quadrat only enter the height.

  • Specify number of standards.

  • Clip standards and clip samples can be toggled on or off using the radio buttons. An option is also available to enter field weights as well as dry weights on the form.

2. Double Sampling / Weight-Unit Sampling

The Double Sampling / Weight-Unit Sampling modules are used for sampling protocols that call for both field and dry weight measures for clipped plant material. the module has the following input display:

This module also allows input using a tabular view mode to assist with inputting dry weights when not in the field.

The Double Sampling / Weight-Unit Sampling module has the following settings:

  • Specify quadrat height and width for reporting purposes. If using a circular quadrat only enter the height.

  • Record by species or group can also be toggled on or off.

  • Clip standards and clip samples can be toggled on or off using the radio buttons. An option is also available to enter field weights as well as dry weights on the form.
