Financial Support

The AgWeatherNet Program is a network of 178 automated weather stations that collects weather data in near real-time and disseminates this information using both push and pull technology associated with various decision support systems. The core operational budget of the AgWeatherNet Program is funded through the College of Agricultural, Human, and Natural Resource Sciences and WSU Extension. Private contributions and support have enabled past product development efforts and make future enhancements possible.
