The objective of the Farm Weather Station Assistance Program is two-fold: to encourage producers to install weather stations and adopt new technology tools; and fully utilize the data to make proactive management decisions to mitigate the impacts of climate change and adverse weather conditions.
Funding is open to eligible applicants at 30-70 per cent subsidy levels.
This program is administered by the Nova Scotia Department of Agriculture and is funded under the federal-provincial Canadian Agricultural Partnership Program.
Perennia will be working with applied applicants to implement the program, including providing the weather station and co-ordinating the installation. Perennia has completed a competitive bidding process to select the weather station package that will be supported under the program.
The program will be be open for applications March 15th to April 30th, 2022. Please visit https://novascotia.ca/programs/Weather-Station-Assistance for full program guidelines and application form.
