Coming soon: FieldScale, the WUE automatic scales

 In conjunction with the acquisition of “PlantEye F500”, we are pleased to announce yet another significant investment: “FieldScale” by Phenospex, the water use efficiency measuring scales.

“FieldScale” is a stainless steel gravimetric platform able to assess the reaction of plants undergoing water stress tests. The “FieldScale” automatic scales can be placed on a flat surface or directly on the ground and can carry various size pots and containers (from 5 kg to 1.000 kg).

The “FieldScale” measuring system is supported by web software allowing to set up the test and oversee the monitored crops. Through the Phenospex R Pack-Age plug-in, the collected data can be analysed according to different parameters, such as the daily water loss and the transpiration velocity. The main control unit is connected to some panels which are able to monitor the different single scales and to scan hundreds of plants at the same time.

Thanks to the use of the “FieldScale” automatic scales, during the trials, we will be able to obtain increasingly precise and detailed information thus improving the quality and the duration of the research while drastically reducing the error rate.
