Research Project: Meteorological Network for the USDA LTAR

Location: Northwest Sustainable Agroecosystems Research

Project Number: 2090-11000-008-10-G
Project Type: Grant

Start Date: Sep 26, 2014
End Date: Sep 25, 2019

Objective:
Augment weather station network in the dryland cropping region of the USDA Long-term Agroecosystem Research (LTAR) Network. The network will contribute meteorological data required for crop modeling and decision support for research and dryland farming activities within the LTAR.

Approach:
Establish 5 weather stations within the dryland cropping region of the LTAR that will integrate into the Washington State University (WSU) AgWeatherNet, thereby providing on-line meteorological data to support research and grower decisions.
