Plant Sap Conductivity Meter

Plant sap conductivity is essentially a measure of the presence, availability or oversupply of nutrients. It can serve as a direct guideline for ideal fertiliser timing.

The Plant Sap Conductivity Meter is a Japanese manufactured specialist meter featuring flat sensor technology, which allows measurement of a very small volume of liquid. This makes it ideal for plant sap measurements. The meter can also be used to measure the conductivity of soil and fertiliser solutions, as well as for general water quality testing.

Benefits

  • Range 0 – 19.9 mS/cm.
  • Automatic temperature compensation.
  • Waterproof.
  • 3 sampling methods available depending on sample volume.
  • Auto hold and auto power off.
  • Note: Published crop specific data is unavailable as this is a relatively new research area. However, comparing data in your crop from season to season while noting yields and insect pressure, as well as making comparisons on sap nutrient status between healthy and suboptimal crops/plants, and comparing young and old leaves, can provide valuable information for fine tuning fertiliser inputs and correcting imbalances.
