PSY 1 Stem Psychrometer
The PSY1 Stem Psychrometer is a very powerful tool integrating all the ambient environmental parameters acting upon the plant such as solar radiation, temperature, humidity, wind speed and water availability into a single continuously measurable variable.
The PSY1 is a stand-alone instrument for the measurement of stem water potential. It can continuously log changes in plant water status/potential, which directly reflect the energy required to access water or the stress the plant is under.
Continuous & non destructive measurement of stem water potential in MPa (megapascal). Complete plant water status monitoring solutions:
Plant response to drought.
Irrigation scheduling for all crops eg: almond, grape & citrus.
Critical thresholds for fruit growth & sugar accumulation.
Plant breeding & plant selection for water use efficiency.
Mine-site vegetation monitoring.
