Abstract: The advanced technology in site-specific and spaceborne determination of grain crude protein content (CP) by remote sensing can help optimize the strategies for buyers in aiding purchasing decisions, and help farmers to maximize the grain output by adjusting field nitrogen (N) fertilizer inputs. We performed field experiments to study the relationship between grain quality indicators and foliar nitrogen concentration (FNC). FNC at anthesis stage was significantly correlated with CP, while spectral vegetation index was significantly correlated to FNC. Based on the relationships among nitrogen reflectance index (NRI), FNC and CP, a model for CP prediction was developed. NRI was able to evaluate FNC with a higher coefficient of determination of R²= 0.7302 in Experiment A. The relationship between laboratory measured and remotely sensed FNC had a coefficient of determination of R²=0.7279 in Experiment B. The method developed in this study could contribute towards developing optimal procedures for evaluating wheat grain quality by in situ canopy-reflected spectrum and ASTER image at anthesis stage.
