Plant physiology

In this category we offer measurement solutions for the measurement of sapflow as well as for tree-growth. Our sapflow-sensors are based on the development of Dr. Andre Granier, INRA Nancy, in the 1990s. In the meantime we sold more than 10.000 sensors with different design (up to 3 thermocouples per needle, different needle-lengths, different length of heating-zone...) to be used no longer not only for pine-trees. Together with the ITC, Wageningen, within the last years we developed the CHD/NTG- (natural temperatur gradient) methode to compensate errors through changes in the way the sensors are heated.

The use of dendrometers and PAR-Sensors give the complete picture of the status of the plant. Dendrometers are quite often used together with our Scatter100 system that allows wireless signal-transmission even in the forest. Scroll down for more information.

Item number : 12620PROSA-App PROfessional-SApflow-Evaluation Software

PROSA Professional-Sapflow-Evaluation Software - With the PROSA-App we have developed a tool which allows the comfortable evaluation and visualization of measured values from sap flow sensors, dendrometers etc.. Embedded in the user administration of our WEBvis solution, data can be selected from the WEBvis environment or external measured values can be uploaded. For the calculation of the sap flow density or the sap flow volume, the user only has to enter the cross-sectional area of the trunk through which the sap flow flows and decide on a method for determining the night maximum of the temperature difference of the sensors. Take a look for yourself and apply for a demo account via sapflow@upgmbh.com. The use of the PROSA app is billed as SaaS (software as a service).
