The Australian Pome Fruit Improvement Program® Ltd. (APFIP) maintains a number of weather stations around Australia at its evaluation sites that record temperature and rainfall data of use to apple and pear growers.
The sites are located in the Huon Valley (Tas), Orange and Batlow (NSW), Manjimup (WA), Stanthorpe (Qld), Ardmona (Vic) and Lenswood (SA). APFIP hopes to have another four stations installed in the near future.
Weather data is downloaded monthly and shared online here, noting that is from the evaluation sites only and may not represent the total district.
All APFIP weather data is now available online – you can view the map of the weather stations locations and select the pink information bubble for up-to-date weather information.
