Effectiveness of derivative vegetation index for chlorophyll estimation in oil-vegetation systems with incomplete soil covering was tested. We measured reflectance spectra for the model systems consisting of plant leaves with various chlorophyll content and soil with various brightness. Distinctions between chlorophyll values estimated for 25 % and 100 % soil covering did not significantly exceed the error of regression formula used for the chlorophyll estimation. Our results prove the capability of the proposed approach for testing crops with a low level of soil covering. The field reflectance measurements of crops with various growing density confirm the laboratory results.
