Abstract
Crop surface temperature under a radiant heated greenhouse was measured using a portable infrared thermometer. Plants were arranged so that each plant occupied a grid cell of 30 cm X 30 cm (1 ft X 1 ft). Data collected were analyzed for their spatial distribution. Geostatistical software was used to characterize the spatial variability of the plant surface temperature. The shape of the empirical semi-variogram suggested that a spherical model was best fitted to the empirical semi-variogram. This model indicated that the nugget effect was estimated at 1.2, the sill at 3.3 and the range at 1.65 m. This model was used in block kriging to estimate plant surface temperature for unsampled locations.
