Campbell Scientific measurement systems are used extensively in agronomy, by crop scientists and soil scientists for agricultural research applications. Our reliable measurement systems offer accuracy and the flexibility to measure most parameters. Typical systems include weather and evapotranspiration stations, carbon dioxide (CO2) and water vapour flux measurement systems, and systems for monitoring soil conditions.
From the study of natural grassland to plant research; from forest research to commercial forestry, Campbell Scientific provide a wide range of sensors, data acquisition systems and components backed with years of experience in this area.
The Duff Moisture Meter and the CS506/205 can provide valuable information about the moisture content around the forest floor - vital information when considering fire risk conditions.
The IR100 series of infra-red radiometers provide spatial average temperatures of leaf or tree canopies used for leaf to air gradient and transpiration measurement and crop water stress indexing.
Weather stations are used to monitor all-round conditions and provide advance warning of fire weather conditions - a rapid deployment station could give on-site data during forest fire emergencies.
The same systems are often used as part of controlled burn studies.
Campbell's data loggers provide control functions often used for greenhouse shutters and irrigation scheduling for precise studies into plant and soil physiology.
