Does the institution use weather data or weather sensors to automatically adjust irrigation practices?:
Yes

A brief description of how weather data or sensors are used:

Grounds does monitor the weather for the need to irrigate plant materials. Irrigation mostly takes place with drip sensors. However our need to irrigate has been reduced greatly over the last few years by planting materials with less water dependency and from installations like turf fields.
