New Weather Station Linked to Ag Weather Atlantic

Thursday, June 21, 2018

Working with AAFC and Ag Weather Atlantic ( http://atl.agrometeo.org/index.php/weather/local ) we were able to set up a new weather station in the West Brook area of Cumberland county.  This links into the Ag Weather Atlantic Network. Check out the link above and explore the site.

Weather is always a big variable for farmers (that point was brought home to us this June).  If funding can be secured to continue Ag Weather Atlantic, we will begin integrating models specific to the wild blueberry production system that will help growers time applications and help growers get a better understanding of how the weather is impacting their wild blueberry crop.

Also, Perennia has just updated it's website. www.perennia.ca - If you look under Agriculture and Commodity Information you will find the Wild Blueberry page.  The page is much cleaner and easier to find what you are looking for.  Explore the whole site and see what Perennia is doing across the industry.
