Title: AgWeatherNet: Weather Monitoring in Washington

Abstract: In general agriculture, including both crop production and animal production, is directly or indirectly impacted by weather, ranging from freeze protection to drought and heat stress. Washington State University established the Public Agricultural Weather System (PAWS) in the late 1980s to serve the agricultural industry. During the last few years the system has been upgraded with state-of-the-art weather monitoring and communication equipment and the network was renamed to AgWeatherNet. The long-term goal of AgWeatherNet is to couple current weather conditions, weather predictions, and short- and longterm climate forecasts with a range of models to allow for timely and efficient decision making by local growers, farmers, producers and others who have a need for weather data and weather-based information.
