The PSY1 Stem Psychrometer is used to continuously monitor plant water potential. Not only is the PSY1 improving our scientific understanding of plant physiology but it is also addressing the practical need of efficient irrigation management.
Professor Mike Dixon, from University of Guelph, Canada, recently examined how the PSY1 Stem Psychrometer could be used to determine whether a mychorrhizal association improved plant hydration in potted trees and whether the instrument could also be used to develop an irrigation regime. Specifically, the study aims were:
