Lindgren traps were hung in the lower canopy so that the funnels hung below the foliage.
arcuata was interesting in that the species starts out as a terrestrial but climbs vine-like into the lower canopy with the inflorescence often displaying overhead.
In contrast to 1997, bolls at the lower canopy position (Position 6-7) in 1998 were subjected to the greatest amount of moisture stress at the time of fiber elongation of the three canopy positions.
This thins the lower canopy and creates a gradually lifting.
In the shaded lower canopy leaves net photosynthesis is less than 30% of that in the upper canopy leaves (Schimel et al.
Soybean plots were believed to have more canopy cover with lower canopy height which probably resulted in less soil loss compared to corn plots.
Syringe applications were made in the absence of wilt, a condition which typically results in lower canopy temperatures than observed in plots with noticeable wilt (DiPaola, 1984).
In other cases, these can be retained to create a denser lower canopy.

The bacteria, when applied to field turf, typically established higher numbers in the lower canopy region as opposed to the upper canopy, and this differential was negated when the turf was shaded (Giesler et al.

Higher humidity levels, longer leaf wetness durations, and more moderate temperatures are predicted in the lower canopy regions compared with the top portions.
