Weight of Plants - Quantitative Characters

Weight is one of the most important quantitative characteristics of plants. Quantitatively growth is best measured on the basis of dry weight, since it expresses the total mass of the vegetation or the biomass. Biomass or the weight of plants can be measured separately for the above ground plant parts and for underground parts, i.e., by drying them at 80°C in an oven.

The data from such studies provide us valuable information about the yield of that species. For example evaluation of the above ground plant parts that are useful provide an accurate idea about the availability of forage in a community.
