How can you improve your agricultural operations?
Manage pest & disease control
Know when to implement pest & disease controls by equipping yourself with a strong weather forecast. Certain states of weather cause pests and diseases to develop that exert an adverse impact on the growth of crops. A pest & disease weather forecast can help farmers ascertain if and when to apply controls to alleviate damage to crops.
Maximize field work productivity
Farmers have lengthy days filled with an infinite number of tasks. Knowing if the soil moisture is just right or the temperature is conducive for seed plantation, you can plan their day effectively and ensure maximum work output. If a weather forecast states that a storm is expected, then you know not to plant seeds as they could drown before germination. If heavy rain is expected during harvest season, farmers can schedule their fieldwork accordingly and save their time, energy and money.
Make sustainable irrigation decisions
Farmers need to schedule the flow volume and timing of water on their crops in a profitable way. Different types of weather forecasts, such as a humidity and dew point forecast, can equip farmers better to track their crop status and to make optimal decisions. This will facilitate cost savings as well in terms of manpower, machinery and resources.
Time fertilizer application
Timing is critical to your decision as when to apply fertilizer, what rate and which form of it to utilize. Weather forecasts will let you know when it is dry enough to apply fertilizer so as it does not wash away and is moist enough to be absorbed by the soil. Fertilizer application in unfavorable weather conditions can cause major losses in costs and resources.
