The only requirement is that the University of Florida be able to access data from the weather stations once they're installed, according to a news release.

Producers may apply for one station and up to five temperature sensors for each operation of less than 300 acres in production.

Producers with larger operations may apply for one station and up to five sensors for each 300 acres in production.

FDACS will provide 75 percent of the cost up to a $50,000 maximum per producer, with a $5,000 cap per station/sensor set.
