The PHYTOS 31 lets you know leaf wetness in no uncertain terms. It measures both the onset and duration of wetness on a simulated leaf, which in turn predicts when the onset of certain diseases or infections may occur. It’s not only a more accurate instrument, it’s also the easiest to set up, making it a simple and straightforward solution to several problems.
Only the PHYTOS 31 ensures that every water droplet is measured. Unlike conventional leaf wetness sensors, its resistance grid doesn’t use salt-laced latex paint which absorbs water. This gives it extra sensitivity to avoid false positives. So there’s no having to cull data to figure out if the sensor was really wet or not.

The PHYTOS 31 uses capacitance technology, so it can sense sub-milligram levels of water condensing on the surface, including frost and ice formation. That way you can establish a threshold that not only indicates when the sensor is wet, but also senses how much water there is. This kind of moisture clarity reduces guesswork and worry about accurately predicting disease conditions.
When your moisture sensor mimics the energetics of an actual leaf, making measurements is a lot easier. There’s no having to paint your sensor’s non-resistance grid first to get good data. No creating thresholds. And no worrying about lots of wiring. Instead, all you have to do is plug the PHYTOS 31 into the ZL6 data logger, where wet and dry threshold ranges are already programmed in. The result: you save time.
