The objective of this research was to identify the relationship between chlorophyll contents and spectral measurements in a maize crop. Spectral measurements were taken and the chlorophyll content was determined in leaf samples in a field experiment with different N rates. Analysis of variance showed differences in the chlorophyll content and spectral indices for the treatments and strong correlations between some reflectance indices and chlorophyll content. Due to a relationship between the N and chlorophyll contents, the results proved to be important for making decisions related to the nitrogen supply for crops, which is crucial in agriculture.
