The DD-S is designed specifically for agricultural plants, small trees and branches. It is suitable for plants with a diameter of less than 5 cm. Due to a patented mounting method, the dendrometer also provides stable readings for very small plants.

Typical Applications

  • Monitoring of the growth processes of plants
  • Monitoring the water status of plants
  • Examination of the influence of environmental factors on plant growth
  • Precise dating of the beginning and end of growing season
  • Precise determination of the point of frost events
  • Estimation of the water content in plants (in combination with sap flow measurement the transpiration can be calculated continuously)
  • Irrigation control
