Existing Mesonet Footprint
The COtL Mesonet is currently established in the Mid North and Riverland/Mallee region of South Australia. We are currently expanding to cover the Limestone Coast all the way to Mount Gambier and including Langhorne Creek and McLaren Vale.
The purpose of the network is to provide accurate and targeted data on the development and presence of adverse conditions for spraying. It is expected that the availability of real-time agricultural weather data and hazardous inversion data will reduce the risk of spray drift. Reducing the incidence of spray drift will also help deliver better water quality in rivers, streams and dams, and reduce crop and pasture contamination thereby preserving South Australia’s clean and green reputation for producing high quality food and wine.
