Decagon Devices is recognized world-wide as a leader in the development of sensor technology and the associated systems that allow for the sensing of agricultural environments. Founded in 1983 by Dr. Gaylon Campbell, a renowned soil scientist at Washington State University, Decagon's instruments are used throughout the world in organizations of all sizes, including food processors, pharmaceutical companies, universities, research and testing laboratories, government agencies, vineyards, farms, and industrial testing facilities.
Dr. Colin Campbell, Vice President for Research and Development leads Decagon’s team in this research initiative. Colin has been a research scientist at Decagon for 11 years. He is also Adjunct faculty with the Dept. of Crop and Soil Sciences at Washington State University where he co-teaches Environmental Biophysics. Dr. Campbell's early research focused on field-scale measurements of CO2 and water vapor flux but has shifted towards moisture and heat flow instrumentation for the soil-plant-atmosphere continuum.
