At the Zurich-Reckenholz location a new lysimeter station was built at the campus of the Agroscope
Reckenholz-Tänikon Research Station ART. Altogether 72 lysimeters were monolithically excavated, each with 1 m2 surface area and a depth of 1.5 m.
Therefore it is the biggest lysimeter station in Europe.
Hillside lysimeter installed in Sierre.
Currently unique, this lysimeter type specially developed for hillsides, fits into the surrounding slope exactly. The basic pr-requisite for this is the patented retrieval technology of UGT GmbH, which can be used without heavy equipment and can even be used in Alpine terrain.
