Some recent AMETA Newsletters (in PDF format) may be viewed via the following links: At the recent February AMetA meeting, Warwick Grace described a proposal to establish an automatic weather station “Mesonet” (mesoscale weather network) in the Mid-North of South Australia. This Mesonet, comprising 40 automatic weather stations, will process the weather observations and provide information to farmers which will allow them to avoid spraying pesticides when weather conditions indicate that spray drift and off-target damage are likely. The various weather conditions associated with spray-drift events, and the specific Mesonet measurements that identify those conditions, were outlined in this talk. A fuller summary of this talk will be given in the April 2018 Newsletter. READ ALL ABOUT IT HERE
