Waihi weather station data now available

02 May 2019

A new weather station has been installed at Fisher Road to support Waihi growers.

The station was installed by Hortplus and extends the network of weather stations across the country.

Waihi growers can now receive tailored weather and Psa risk data for their region by using the Psa Risk Model on the KVH website, with access also available to other tools including the growing degree day calculator, chill unit calculator, hourly and daily weather data, and weather forecasting.

KVH thanks Hortplus for the installation of this weather station. Thanks also go to those who helped to source a suitable location - in particular, the grower now hosting this very valuable addition to the Psa Risk Model network.

Growers can register online to use the model if they don’t currently have a login, or email [email protected] for more information.
