USDA-ARS Research Weather Network
headline bar
Weather is one of the key factors that influences management decisions affecting nursery field operations.  In recognition of this, the Application Technology Research Unit began development of a Research Weather Network at various locations in Northern Ohio in 2000.  In cooperation with local production nurseries and Ohio State University’s (OSU) Ohio Agricultural Research Development Center (OARDC), the ARS Research Weather Network is providing data used to predict and monitor local weather events that directly impact issues related to the nursery industry.

The USDA weather network is integrated into the OSU/OARDC network, bringing the total number of stations to 19, 16 of which are currently active.
