We assessed the magnitude of grazing by measuring the difference in chlorophyll a concentration inside and outside cages at the end of the study period.
Both, concentration of chlorophyll a and chlorophyll b were increased in partially coloured bracts.
Most plants possess chlorophyll a and chlorophyll b which are the main photosynthetic pigments (Campbell and Reece,2005).
Absorption measurements were used to quantify the chlorophyll a, chlorophyll b, and total chlorophyll concentrations, based on the equations reported by Wellburn (1994).

Leaf chlorophyll a/b ratios were determined by dividing the chlorophyll a concentration by that of chlorophyll b.
These results indicated that the yellow- green leaf color o f burley tobacco was not the result of imbalance in content ratio between chlorophyll a and chlorophyll b, but the abnormal lower content of total chlorophyll in its leaves.
