In addition, the North Dakota Agriculture Weather Network (click here for weather information) has stations in Montana located at Sidney and Brorson. Click here for Crop Water Use information for these stations.
AgriMet is a satellite-linked, weather and evapotranspiration (ET) reporting network. This network is used to assist irrigators in scheduling irrigation applications. Growers use the system's data along with field examinations to determine when and how much water is required for optimum crop growth.
AgriMet provides generic local crop and weather information accessed via the links on the individual station page.
AgriMet is excited to announce a partnership with Washington State University to incorporate AgriMet data into WSU's AgWeatherNet Irrigation Scheduler program. To customize crop consumptive water use specific to your field or fields, use the mobile link or desktop link. Note, to use either link, you have to have a AgWeatherNet account (free registeration) which can be done through either of these two links.
