Just as Precision Agriculture has captured the focus of many Alabama farmers, the need for accurate climate and weather data has also become critical.
Over 25 years, the Alabama Agricultural Experiment Station (AAES) has partnered with AWIS Weather Services to provide current and historical weather data for research, Extension and agricultural programs.
We started replacing older weather stations with more modern technology in 2016. Data accessibility and accuracy are our primary goals, especially in an era where precision can provide opportunities for additional profit.
