Sometimes life requires the use of some Common Sense.

Common Sense - nursery plants need a lower standard measurement.

For 20 years I used 75 cm as my standard and it worked fine until I wanted to compare my results to local studies done by pesky PhD wielding banana scientists that used 100 cm as their standard.

Most people including banana scientists can readily see that because of the shape of the base an elevated measurement is more reliable.
