The largest weather network in Western Canada, linking more than 700 on-farm monitoring stations, has grown from the Prairie soil.
Farmers can participate in this innovative network, at no charge, with WeatherFarm™ — an innovative online weather centre. It includes mapping and modelling tools that producers can use to help predict and manage pests, increase the efficiency of crop-protection products and improve farm management practices.

The weather network was launched in 2007 by farmers through the CWB and WeatherBug® , with support from partners like Richardson International and Bayer CropScience. The network is on track to revolutionize the way weather information is gathered, shared and used in Canada – by farmers, media, business, government and the public – enhancing services from Environment Canada. It is the largest private weather network in Canada.
The stations are solar-powered and wireless, feeding information to an IP data logger in your home, which links into the network via the Internet. A station package, including installation and maintenance, can be purchased by contacting Alison Sass at (204) 983-4783 or firstname.lastname@example.org
