An on-line system for non-destructive measurement of tuber volume in sweet potato plants (Ipomoea batatas Lam.) was newly developed by applying a laser micrometer (LM). Diameters of the tuber were scanned by moving the LM along the longitudinal axis of the tuber at constant speed, and the volume was evaluated by an integral method. The LM system made it possible to measure volume of an attached tuber with high accuracy and resolution.
