The sensor measures the temperature at the level of the leaf. Parameters obtained by the sensor are important for calculating the dew on the list, as well as input parameters for the models of infection.
GT2 universal temperature probe:
- measuring range: – 40 ° C to + 90 ° C
- ± 0.3 ° F (- 20 to 40 ° C)
- ± 0.5 ° F (- 40 to + 60 ° C)
- ± 0.7 ° C (+60 to + 90 ° C)
Universal temperature sensor is accurate and robust sensor. It can withstand the acidity of the soil and rainfall. Temperature of a leaf is an important parameter of models that predict the development of diseases and pests. This data gives an insight into verifiable dew on the leaves which, along with the temperature of the leaf and air is crucial for the development of fungal infections.
