Keywords: Bank Account, Weather Station, Weather Stations

You are able to add your own weather station to the network, we can accommodate for different weather station models and manufactures, but we have found that

weather stations are more durable and reliable which means they last a lot longer than others. We have always recommended Campbell Scientific weather stations. For example the Campbell Scientific weather station on Lawn Road in Hastings, New Zealand has been going for almost 30 years!

We are always looking to expand our weather station network in to areas where we need coverage, so contact us if you are interested in adding pre-existing weather stations to our network, or installing a new one on your property.

Please note that neither the owners of the stations nor HortPlus accept any liability for the quality of the data or possible disruptions to service. If you are looking for guarantees, you could consider installing your own weather station.
