Agriculture

For farmers it is crucial to understand coming weather conditions in order to avoid risks and maximize yield.

All farmers have to take weather conditions into consideration when estimating additional irrigation or evaluating the operating temperatures of fertilizers and other materials.

Because of the coordinate based weather forecast method, you can have accurate weather information calculated exactly for your field or area. Compared to the public forecasts estimated on the nearest town, the coordinate based forecast takes note of the nearest body of water and local topography that could affect local weather conditions.

BE PROACTIVE TO AVOID RISKS

Public weather forecasts show the most probable weather conditions but this is often not enough for serious farming. Since weather forecasting can never be a 100% accurate, farmers need to understand the forecast in more detail.

Foreca's innovative forecast method shows the range of probability for each weather parameter to better understand how reliable the available forecast is at a specific point of time. Knowing in advance the direction the forecast is likely to change, helps you to be proactive in relation to the weather, giving you a better basis for avoiding risks.
