New FieldScout Red/Far Red Light Meter


PRESS RELEASE - for immediate release

Plainfield, IL – Spectrum Technologies, Inc.

Plants use the Red/Far Red light ratio to determine how crowded they are, and grow tall or full accordingly. This is relevant to understanding plant populations of row crops, spacing of greenhouse plants, and the impact of shade on golf greens. In the past, Red/Far Red measurement required expensive spectroradiometers or sensors, and post-measurement computation.

Now affordably available in an easy to read, hand-held unit – the Field Scout Red/Far Red Meter displays the red/far red ratio on the LCD screen, as well as actual readings for the 660nm and 730 nm sensors.

Spectrum Technologies, Inc. manufactures and supplies affordable weather and field measurement technologies that help growers make better decisions on crop inputs.
