We are now using Aeris as our localised weather forecast provider. Along with the original 10 day forecast we have also added the ability to view hourly forecasts.
Contact us if you are interested in this add-on.
See an example here.
We have introduced a new database on our cloud server, so zooming out to week view or longer is now much faster. Try the new “30 day” view, which is often more useful than month view.
With the right sensors, your Harvest weather station can calculate and display the risk of Botrytis cinerea and powdery mildew.
The Bacchus model for calculating Botrytis risk was developed in NZ by Dr Balasubramaniam (Bala).
