This paper is development of spectropolarization nephelometry technique which allows to investigate the mechanisms of formation of radiation flux reflected by the plant leaf. Polarization degree angular dependencies of radiation reflected by the plant leaf were determined by the specially made goniometer installation according to specially developed technique. The potato leaves were taken as the research objects. Leaf radiation spectropolarization characteristics were received for the different potato sorts during two vegetation seasons. The relationship between spectral and polarization characteristics and potato sorts was studied by applied statistic methods. The connection between the position and magnitude of the polarization degree angular dependence maximum of reflected radiation and the potato sorts was discovered. It was shown that the ontogenetic development stage and sort or hybrid of potato may be diagnosed from analysis of the polarization degree angular functions.
