grass water potential
The Grass Compression Gland is specifically designed for the measurement of grass, leaf blade water potential. It can be used on a range of grass like, or monocot, blades from wheat to corn to lillies and more.
If your instrument is fitted with the Compression Gland already you will need the three items shown in the image below. They are shown with both top and bottom views. If your instrument does not have a Compression Gland, you will need to have your lid modified to receive the Compression Gland. Contact us directly for more information.
The Grass Gasket is 1.0 inch in diameter. The sealing “slit” is 3/4” long and 1/8” wide at the widest place. It is an eliptical opening.
