June 29, 2007, Newsletter Issue #70: Farm/Home Meteorological Stations

Tip of the Week

You're a farmer. The few, the proud, the farmers. While you live within miles of a scientific weather station, you don't wait for the radio or your computer to tell you what the soil conditions will be for the next planting season.

You thought of getting a small outdoor weather station just to check the plots closest to the house. After all, you go out every day, rain or shine. But you can't be everywhere, and you need a meteorological weather station that works as hard as you do.

We like Davis Vantage Pro with UV radiation sensors and solar radiation sensors (the sun can be too strong, after all), as well as wireless leaf/soil moisture/temp stations for cornfields. Just make sure to buy wireless signal extenders. Better yet, install your meteorological weather station in a mobile home near the fields.

Oh, and don't forget an agricultural/turf weather management software program to track weather in the growing season you specify.

You've seen Paris...well, Paris, Las Vegas, but you still love the farm. The weather can't take that away, but thanks to an outdoor weather station, you can thrive and feed the world.
