Agro-meteorological stations, as the name implies, are designed specifically for agriculture. They measure meteorological data such as temperature, rain, air humidity and are equipped with special sensors such as those for leaf wetness.
The stations are suitable for acquiring atmospheric data from the ground (around 1 – 1.80 meters) mainly in the plains or hills.
It is important to evaluate the installation of the stations according to the crop needs, the geomorphologic conditions of the field and the habits of the workers (machinery can for example cut the wires of the sensors). The ideal situation would be to have an agro-meteorological station for the same crop every 5-10 hectares in the plain.
