The Royal Eijkelkamp Smart Lysimeter, complete set for measuring real evaporation in the field. Additional accessories available.

  • Scientifically backed
  • Undisturbed soil monolith
  • Patented design
  • Infrared sensors for integrated metering



Rain and snow is visible, but there's another form of water we visually detect: evaporation. It's the biggest cause of water loss in almost every area on earth, which makes it important to research. But because it is so difficult to measure, reliable figures on this invisible water loss are lacking. 

That's why various knowledge institutes, businesses (including Royal Eijkelkamp) and the government have collaborated to develop the Royal Eijkelkamp Smart Lysimeter. Evaporation figures obtained with the Lysimeter are very valuable for water management. 

The monolith is filled with an undisturbed soil sample of 50 cm high and 50 cm in diameter.
