The CSBP Research and Agronomy team has recently installed new telemetry weather stations at our trials around the state in order to get real time weather and rainfall data from our trial sites.

The weather stations will allow our customers access to real time localised weather data in their areas that will hopefully add value to their businesses. The stations are solar powered with deep charge batteries and will provide the following information: 

  • Rainfall - in 10 minute increments
  • Wind
          - Speed
          - Direction
          - Gusts
  • Delta T
  • Dew Point
  • Soil Temp (Goanna only)
  • Solar Radiation
  • Barometric pressure
  • Humidity
  • Temperature

Please contact your CSBP area manager for details on how you can access data from the CSBP weather stations.
