The mean CGR over an interval of time t1 and t2 is usually calculated as shown in the following formula CGR = 1 W2 − W1 × g m −2 day −1 P t 2 − t1 ( ) where W1 and W2 are the dry weights at two sampling times t1 and t2 respectively and P is the land area. 2. Relative Growth Rate (RGR): The term RGR was coined by Blackman. It is defined as the rate of increase in dry matter per unit of dry matter already present. This is also referred to as “efficiency index” since the rate of growth is expressed as the rate of interest on the capital.
