New era of Umwelt-Geräte-Technik GmbH: Dr. Sascha Reth is sole shareholder

The founders of Umwelt-Geräte-Technik GmbH Dr. Manfred Seyfarth and Bernd Fürst have transferred their company shares completely to Dr. Sascha Reth at the beginning of the year 2022. “With this step, we want to continue our successful business development in a future-oriented manner. We are convinced that Dr. Reth will continue to manage UGT GmbH in our interests and drive forward the modernization course already initiated,” said Bernd Fürst at the official handover of the shares.

It has been 30 years since Dr. Manfred Seyfarth and Bernd Fürst founded Umwelt-Geräte-Technik Gmbh in Müncheberg. A lot has happened since 1992 and the company has become one of the global leaders in lysimeter and measurement technology. “We are proud of what we have achieved so far and are excited to see how the journey of UGT GmbH will continue,” says Dr. Seyfarth.

Dr. Sascha Reth has been part of the team for almost 15 years. With a doctorate in biology, he opened the new southern branch in Freising in 2008, which moved to the Munich Airport Business Park two years ago. Since 2012, Dr. Reth has been a co-partner and managing director of UGT GmbH. “I would like to lead Umwelt-Geräte-Technik GmbH into a new era together with my fellow managing director Dr. Marco Reiche. I would like to express my sincere thanks to Dr. Seyfarth and Mr. Fürst and wish them the very best for the future,” says Dr. Sascha Reth.

Planning and Installation

We offer scientifically based project advice for the erection of measurement stations and lysimeter installations. UGT GmbH is happy to assume the conception and design of the measurement project equipment, construction realisation, installation and test run as well as instruction or maintenance or to support you according to your requirements.

Lysimeter experiments

In our own lysimeter station, which essentially serves to verify new measurement methods and components, we offer the possibility of conducting special lysimeter experiments for you.
Test runs with different objectives can be  made simultaneously on four Lysimeters with a cross-section area of 1.0 m² and a height of 2.0 m. Due to the direct proximity to the lysimeter, our employees are in an ideal position to accompany the project.
We can conduct data collection and the complete ana- lysis of the experiment for you or together with you.

Lysimeter retrieval

After completion of the lysimeter experiments we are happy to retrieve the lysimeters for you. Using a special lysimeter retrieval technique, the soil monolith is cut into different thicknesses whilst maintaining the full cross sectional area. The use of high speed diamond cable sawing technology enables the original structure of the monoliths to be essentially maintained. Additional tests on soil development in the lysimeters as well as chemical and biological analyses of the soil cores are facilitated here. After securing these additional results, the lysimeter vessels are available for the production of new soil monoliths. The PE-HD container lysimeter stations we offer can also be used again after retrieval. They may be repositioned as required and equipped with new lysimeter vessels.

Project Support

We can support you in your project in the development of measurement equipment and procedures or in the design of new measurement stations or networks. From development through production to installation and test run, UGT GmbH offers the support of the individual steps and of the entire project with its combined know-how and innovation.

Training / Workshops

Our team of scientists and technicians provide training and induction for practical use under field and laboratory conditions for all products of UGT GmbH.
Training events range from service, calibration and measurement instruction through to plausibility checks and the interpretation of the data records obtained.
Thanks to our cooperation partners, we are able to offer this training also internationally - in Brazil, Australia, China and Russia, for example.
Specialised papers on new measurement methods and instrument developments are given in national and international workshops as well as ideas and experience exchanged.

Data acquisition and analysis

In addition to planning your test setups we can also assist you in analysing the data acquired. With the assistance of remote data transmission we will prepare your data, compile them in diagrams or tables and will produce a comprehensive analysis. For large installations we offer the preparation and establishment of data base systems as you require.

UGT is partner of:

Picarro’s highly sophisticated gas (e.g. G2508, G5131-i) and liquid analyzers (e.g L2130-i, L2140-i), perfectly complement different UGT products such as lysimeters, soil gas chambers, “EcoLab” ecotrons, and weather stations (e.g. G2311-f). In 2016, UGT extended the production halls and equipped them with modern workplaces in electronics and electrical engineering. This allows us to work on Picarro instruments and do small in-house repairs and tests including certain RMA’s.

For more than 40 years, In-Situ has been an industry leader in accurate and reliable water level instrumentation. Choose from vented and non-vented models (Rugged TROLL, Level TROLL). In-Situ is the market leader in all-in-one, economical, individual equipable multiparameter probes with smart sensors to measure DO, Conductivity, Temperature, Pressure, pH and ORP (Aqua TROLL-series).


The brand Soilmoisture stands for high quality lab system. The outstanding ceramic products have been sold for decades to customers. Sets for the pF determination and extractors are standard instrumentation of every soil lab in the world. TDR Soilmoisture Meter (TRASE) is the most accurate & universal moisture meter available.
