The technical equipment for experiments and measurements is widely build in our own laboratories for electronics and optics, as well as in our mechanical workshop. Some agricultural machinery with sensor equipment and a lab for soil physics are also part of our equipment.

Our research work is largely based on practical field experiments and measurements. Our strength are self developed and self constructed experimental and measuring devices. Sometimes they have a surprisingly simple construction. In other cases, they are complex measurements systems with highly precise mechanical, electronic or optical components.
