PhytoStem
Sap flow and stem diameter variation measurements
Overview
Sap flow and stem diameter variation measurements.
For plants with stem diameters between 8 and 19 mm.
For herbaceous (tomato, pepper, cucumber, ...) and woody (grapevine, kiwi, raspberry, rose, ...) stems.
Stand-alone data logger connected to the network via Cellular or Wi-Fi.
Sensors show plant responses to changes in the environment (irrigation, lighting, temperature changes,...) or plant manipulation (pruning, harvesting,...).
Sensors can stay at the same spot on the plant for an entire growing season.
Sensors
Sap flow sensor
Dynamax Dynagage sap flow sensor.
Continuously measures sap flow through the stem (typically every 2.5 minutes).
Sap flow in g/h is calculated online and in real-time (no user intervention required).
Daily sap flow and other statistics are calculated in real-time.
Diameter variation sensor
Solartron displacement sensor.
Custom sensor holder for robust sensor installation.
Continuously measures the stem diameter with ┬Ám accuracy (typically every 2.5 minutes).
Real-time autocorrection algorithm to filter out disturbances in the signal due to e.g. pruning and harvesting.
Daily growth, maximum daily shrinkage and various other statistics are calculated in real-time.
