Dr. Ben-Min Chang – Agricultural weather station networks can help growers manage cold damage and more
Weather information is critical to growers’ everyday operation. A well designed weather station network can provide valuable weather data for multiple purposes. For example, the air temperature and wind speed would be useful information to determine how to operate wind machines effectively. We can also use the local weather data for real-time cold hardiness estimation at a specific site. Ben-Min will further discuss how weather data can help growers to monitor grapevine stress.
