Meteorological Station

A meteorological station was established at the Weizmann Institute. The station has a direct impact on the amount of water used for irrigation.
The watering system is controlled and computerized.
Calculation of quantities is based on evaporation data. The meteorological station allows obtaining accurate data on evaporation and the allocation of water for irrigation is affected by the daily data received from the station directly to the watering system’s computer.
