advanced weather stations allow growers to maximize plant performance:
US: Winners of Stockosorb trade show give-away
One growing trend is the use of weather stations. Much more than just wind speed indicators and thermometers, today’s advanced weather stations use remote sensors and sophisticated software. Since data can be fed to either a base station or PC, growers can quickly know what action they need to take, and in what areas.
Weather stations monitor temperature, humidity, rainfall, barometric pressure, solar radiation, wind speed and direction, soil moisture and even leaf moisture. This data can be used to modify plant maintenance schedules, saving money on labor and irrigation costs.
Many systems use wireless sensors that send data to a central base station, allowing growers to instantly measure conditions in different production areas. Additionally, software that accompanies the better units also utilizes charts and graphs showing a variety of data over time.
Weather stations are such an important and cost-saving tool that STOCKOSORB® elected to give away several of the Davis Weather Stations at three of this year’s trade shows. Some of the lucky winners are detailed below.
STOCKOSORB® in conjunction with weather stations can help growers conserve and manage water in their growing operations. To obtain additional information, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org or call 336-335-3764.
