Abstract: There are numerous techniques for the estimation of leaf area. Every technique has some advantages and disadvantages over one another. This study proposed a new technique for the leaf area estimation i.e. mobile application (Petiole). It is a free of cost mobile application. The mobile application was used for the estimation of the leaf area of six different plant species. It was observed that error percentage for the leaf area estimation was recorded less than 4% in case of banyan, Jamun and lemon plant leaf. It was also concluded that less than 3 cm2 area error was present for all the cases. This study confirmed the reliability, correctness and robustness of the mobile application for leaf area estimation. This study ensures the accuracy and capability of the petiole app to mitigate the problems of laborious, cumbersome and expensive experiments for the leaf area estimation and the method also saved a lot of time as compared to the other methods. It has the potential to avoid the complex coding algorithm for the program based techniques, usually adopted for the measurement of the leaf area.
