Cornell Cooperative Extension Nassau County (CCE-NC) received the Long Island Nursery & Landscape Association (LINLA) 2019 Innovative Grant. This grant has provided CCE-NC with funds to install a weather station at our East Meadow Farm location.
The Rain Wise weather station provides real time precipitation, temperature, humidity, leaf wetness, wind speed/ direction, and solar radiation. CCENC plans to utilize this data in conjunction with our Master Gardener program, demonstration gardens, and with Integrated Pest Management Practices to mitigate pests and disease in our local community through education and outreach.
Our East Meadow Farm unit is connected to the Cornell University Network for Environment and Weather Applications (NEWA) weather station site.
Please ask about our weather station and how the information can help you with your garden!
