With the network construction of CINRAD weather radar, common radar products gradually have played an important role in weather modification work. For example, analyzing the direction and speed of movement, strength and  type of precipitation can provide a reference for operation command. The velocity products can assist in choosing the best operational opportunity and position. The VIL products can identify hail cloud and guide the hail suppression. By integrated application of  a variety of radar products on weather modification, command systems and operation parameters can be created and the effective test also can be made. However, there are some gaps and deficiencies in the application of so many products. Finally, some limitations of existing radar observation network are pointed  out, but millimeter-wave cloud radar, the dual-polarization radar and the TITAN system can get more potential application. The future development direction of radar observation network is also discussed.
