PlantPen NDVI 300

The NDVI 300 measures Normalised Difference Vegetation Index, which is an important indicator of chlorophyll content in plants. The device compares reflected light at two distinct wavelengths: 660 and 740 nm.

The NDVI 300 measures Normalised Difference Vegetation Index, which is an important indicator of chlorophyll content in plants. The device compares reflected light at two distinct wavelengths: 660 and 740 nm.

Rugged and compact the PlantPen can be favorably used in the field, in the plant biology lab or for education. A handy leaf clip, simple two-button operation, and a bright display make the PlantPen an easy-to-use instrument that does not disturb investigated plants (no leaf detaching or damaging). It takes four AAA alkaline batteries and is supplied in a robust case.
