modern consulting and the automatic Decision Support Systems (DSS) need reliable measurements of the agrometeorological elements in a digital and on-line form. For this purpose, properly equipped and correctly spaced agrometeorological station networks are necessary. When building the networks the existing meteorological infrastructure should be taken into consideration. For this to be possible, a professional inventory of information about the existing points of the agrometeorological elements

In the Wielkopolska Voivodeship, 179 stations located in 107 municipalities in all 35 counties have been found. There are no stations in other 119 of the municipalities. In 67 municipality areas, 98 stations were found in the 45 counties from the regions around the Wielkopolska Voivodeship. There are 51 stations located in 39 municipalities of counties bordering the Wielkopolska Voivodeship. No station was found in four of the 27 border counties. The collected information will be helpful for planning the agrometeorological monitoring network. The information we are able to provide is necessary for supporting those decision makers responsible for the management of agriculture in Wielkopolska.
