MetWatch is powered by a modern technology stack that is highly scalable and backed by proven cloud-based infrastructure.
The MetWatch Platform seamlessly integrates a range of modular services to provide a comprehensive weather & disease solution.
MetWatch can interface with existing weather station hardware, digital tools and business intelligence systems and databases to bring critical data together into one place.
We maintain a network of scientific & research-grade weather stations located in key growing areas
We take weather data from our well established and expanding network of over 100 scientific-grade weather stations, located on private orchards, farms, vineyards, and research sites in the main horticultural and agricultural growing areas of New Zealand. We are also able to interpret weather data from a range of other sources including grower-owned weather stations to provide a full picture of the microclimates and other factors that are important to making decisions.
Our network of weather stations measure key variables including air temperature, rainfall, wind speed and direction, humidity, calculated GDD and chill units, alongside other parameters such as leaf wetness, dew point and evapotranspiration. All data is updated and fed into a cloud-based database for rendering, analysis and display with our digital platform tools.
