In-Field MicroClimate Station on the Smart Farm

Pan Canadian Smart Farm Network members — Olds College, Discovery Farms and Lakeland College — are conducting research to compare data collected from weather sensors within the field to outside the crop boundary to produce multiple data sets for analysis.

Comparisons of In-Field MicroClimate Variability & External Weather Stations

 In-Field MicroClimate Station on the Smart Farm

Pan Canadian Smart Farm Network members — Olds College, Discovery Farms and Lakeland College — are conducting research to compare data collected from weather sensors within the field to outside the crop boundary to produce multiple data sets for analysis. This will compare high resolution data (in-field sensors) versus low resolution data (weather station on the side and public weather station) as it compares to disease models. It will also identify if micro-climate data collected within the field provides additional value to farm management decisions (fungicide application and scouting timing).
