An absolute "must" for agriculturalists, and likewise for serious gardeners and amateur meteorologists. The glass cylinder of this "Pluviometer" is designed so that rain falling into the vessel is compared to the area of a square metre. You can read off the amount of precipitation in litres per square metre from the scale. 1 mm on the scale thus corresponds to 1 litre of precipitation per square metre. Length of the steel holder 130 cm (51" approx.), cylinder 21 cm (8" approx.) high, 12 cm (5" approx.) diameter, total weight 1.3 kg.
