Microclimate and its influences

UGT GmbH installed 5 measuring plots at a wheat field for the Leibniz Centre for Agricultural Landscape Research (ZALF)
The focus of this experiment is on interactions between pathogenic fungi, site microclimate and the associated effects on wheat biomass productivity. Customized UGT measuring stations were established to monitor meteorological and soil conditions.

At the experimental site are installations in each measuring plot of soil moisture, soil temperature sensors (SMT-100) and tensiometer (Tensio 152) for soil assessment. Besides meteorological sensors (temperature, humidity, global radiation) and leaf wetness sensors were installed
