Sap flow

The most powerful tool to monitor your water use efficiently

Directly installed on the plant, sap flow sensors remotely measure vine transpiration and provide the most accurate reading to manage your irrigation.

HEATER

Held in place with Velcro, this orange sleeve applies heat to the stem.

2

THERMOCOUPLES

These take temperature readings at the stem surface just before and after the heat is applied. The differential in the readings reflects how much water is pumping through the vine.

3

ALUMINUM BUBBLE WRAP

Shields against external sources of heat (mostly sunshine) that could interfere with accurate measurements.

4

UPLINK

This wire connects to a solar-powered data logger, which transmits real-time information anywhere in the world.

OPTIMAL PLAN FOR
YOUR TERROIR

Listen directly to your vine. With one single tool, capture everything that impacts your plant water needs, from daily ET to water holding capacity, varietal, rootstock, row spacing, root depth, and much more. This allows you to define:

  • the optimal timing thanks to your daily Water Deficit Index
  • the right volume based on your plant response
