Australian Tree Crop Map: Severe Weather App

App can warn growers of extreme weather

The University of New England's Applied Agricultural Remote Sensing Centre (AARSC) has launched a new phone app to alert growers croppers to oncoming extreme weather events; it is called Australian Tree Crop Map: Severe Weather App.

The app aims to give the horticulture tree crop industry and its growers a valuable tool to help prepare for and respond to extreme events.

The weather app is built upon the national map of commercial tree crops (including avocado, banana, citrus, macadamia, mango and olive crops), overlayed by Bureau of Meteorology data, including a satellite image of Australia.

It will help growers and their industries to respond to severe weather events, including tropical cyclones, thunderstorms, hazardous winds, hail and rain.
