vagens = pods or husks (the singular form, "vagem," can refer to French beans or kidney beans, among others)

vapotranspiraçao = vapotranspiration (the same term in English; refers to the passage of a gas or liquid, in vapor form, through a membrane or other tissue)

topo da plantaçao = plantation crest or summit; also, the highest point (in terms of elevation) in an area of planted ground

estoma = stoma (that is, one of the tiny openings in the skin of certain plants, through which gases and water are exchanged between the internal spaces and the outside atmosphere)

ponto de orvalho = dew point (that is, the termperature at which air becomes saturated when cooled, without the addition of moisture or a change in temperature, such that any further cooling causes condensation; also known as the "dew-point temperature")
