The first Rhizons were developed and introduced to the market as artificial roots in the early 90’s by Mr. Frits Meijboom, an agricultural scientist. Right from the beginning, they were appreciated for their sampling characteristics and user-friendly properties.

Since then, many new types of Rhizons have been developed to answer the specific demands of soil and agricultural researchers. Moreover, scientists in research areas eg. marine geochemistry and environmental issues got interested in Rhizons. They have found their way to universities and research institutes all over the world, and therefore they are mentioned in many scientific publications.


It is our ambition to improve the quality and the range of our products continuously. And of course, also in the future you can count on our professional advice and high service level.
