Wyoming Wheat Weather Monitoring

We are using Onset weather stations with the Hobo RX3000 to  monitor weather at 4   winter wheat variety trial sites and one on-farm trial, located across Southeast Wyoming. This weather information will be compared to variety performance in the trials in order to aid producers in making better variety choices when planting.

For more information on the research project, check out the 2015 UW Ag Research Station Field Days Bulletin. Go to page 80 for the “Weather monitoring in winter wheat variety trials” report.

For more information on the weather stations go to the Onset website. Also, see the video in the sidebar for more information.

Real-time weather data

All the stations are set up to transmit data at 30 minute intervals over the cellular network. Data can be viewed  in real-time at the links below, with the last seven days available for download.

  1. Can you include the Barometric pressure readings in the display page? Your data set could compliment ground water level data being collected by the Wyoming State Engineer’s Office.

    1. That isn’t something we have considered but there is a barometric pressure sensor that could be installed on these weather stations. We will look into that. I would be happy to talk to you about how we could help. We are always looking for ways this information could be of benefit beyond the variety trials.
