Data from the new Wakanui and Drummond (Southland) weather stations is now available for FAR Weather Platform users.
The platform offers growers useful tools for these new and existing sites in both the South and North Island. These tools include:
- Pest and disease models for aphids and cocksfoot downy mildew (in beta)
- Hourly and daily weather forecasts, plus a link to severe weather warnings
- Hourly, daily and monthly weather summary data
- Seasonal comparisons, including a chilling unit calculator, growing degree days, plus rainfall and temperature
The current functionality of each station can be seen here. We plan on adding more stations and more functionality, so keep an eye out for those updates.
