The leaf wetness sensor detects the presence of condensation on its sensitive surface and has been designed to accurately reproduce the thermodynamic behaviour of a leaf.
The leaf wetness degree provides information for agricultural and floriculture fields to determine the most appropriate phytosanitary treatment to prevent mould and fungal infections, that can affect the plants and crops in the presence of condensation on the leaves.
The double sensitive surface helps determine the wetness degree both on the top and bottom of the leaf. An important feature that facilitates accurate readings, is that the two sides of the leaf have different drying times.
In order to ensure a long duration of the sensors useful life span, the surface of the sensor is specially treated to resist atmospheric agents and chemical agents present in pesticide products.
