The concentration of oxygen in soil is an important element for the growth of plants. A reduction in the oxygen concentration could affect the physiological processes of plants negatively. We offer a range of instruments that provide insight into these processes, for soil gas analysis and for measuring oxygen diffusion.Read more
Soil gas analysis can yield a lot of information concerning the soil environment. By using a piercing probe and an oxygen content meter, the growing conditions for shrubs and trees can be defined. With this method, it is possible to measure the degree of soil contamination in an area without time-consuming soil drilling.More information
Gas diffusion in the soil takes place almost exclusively through the continuously air-filled pores. Plants need air as well as water, so a permanent heterogeneous pore system is an essential requirement. Royal Eijkelkamp has developed an instrument to measure the mobility of oxygen in the soil. With the help of insights from these measurements, a decrease in root growth can be prevented.More information
