Abstract: Cotton growers in the Dawson Valley currently have no access to localised, correct weather forecasting and status and rely on information relayed from weather stations located at Biloela which is 116 km away. Local growers wish to increase their access to reliable weather information to enable them to determine predicted temperature, rainfall events and wind direction and speed thus enabling them to make better farm and crop management decisions. The purchase and installation of three Oz Forecast Next Gen Compact Weather Stations with solar radiation kits will enable growers to access this information easily on their mobile phones and has the capacity for Station extension to include soil temperature.
