It is a measure of the evaporation potential, or the difference in “wetness” (the amount of water vapor), of the air at the leaf versus the “wetness” of…

An Introduction to Vapor Pressure Deficit

How well do you understand temperature and relative humidity? By Harry Connor Vapor Pressure Deficit (VPD) is used by growers to assess how dry the air is at a given moment.
