Field plant water status console

The field plant water status console is an analog system used to determine plant water potential up to 40 bar. A leaf or small branch is cut off and first exposed to atmospheric pressure in the specimen holder. The pressure is increased until the plant moisture is pressed through the section of stem. This equilibrium pressure is a measure of the negative pressure of the water in the plant system at the time of cutting off the sample.



  • Simple, fast and reliable determination of the water potential of plants

The set consists of:

  • Standard specimen holder and accessories
  • Manometer compressor which can be adjusted up to 40 bar
  • Pressure tank



Field plant water status console-2

The field plant water status console is also available as portable version for use in the field. Specimen holder, manometer and accessories for this are built into a case with handle. In place of the compressor, a portable pressure cylinder generates the required pressure in the sample container. This can be read off using a dial indicator.

The set consists of:

  • Standard specimen holder and accessories in a case
  • Manometer compressor up to 40 bar
  • Digital microscope and holder
  • Portable pressure cylinder
