Davis Weather Stations
Davis sells prosumer grade weather stations that are relatively inexpensive ($500-$1000) but reliable enough to last 3-5 years. The ST100 Altrac Station can connect with any Davis Integrated Sensor Suite (ISS) such as the Vantage Pro2 line of products.
For agriculture use, we recommend the Wireless Vantage Pro2™ Plus which includes UV & Solar Radiation Sensors.
