3. Press the MODE button to switch between displaying the
Red / Far Red Ratio, and the Red and Far Red readings.
4. The sensor assembly can be rotated to provide accurate
readings while maintaining visibility of the display screen.
5. Turn the meter off after use to conserve battery power. Changing the Battery

Red and Far Red Light
Plants sense the amount of light in the ranges around 660 na-
nometers (red) and 730 nanometers (far red), and use the ratio
between the two to direct growth. Though plants differ in the
details of their reaction, in general a low Red / Far Red ratio
results in elongation and lower leaf area compared to a higher
The Field Scout Red / Far Red Meter measures the light in
these two ranges, and displays the values in units of µmol m-2
s-1 (the number of photons in units of micromoles, striking an
area one meter square each second).
In addition, the meter displays the Red / Far Red Ratio, elimi-
nating the need for computation.
