Meteobot is a weather station app, specialized for precision farming. It gives you real-time information about the weather and soil conditions in your fields – directly from your Meteobot weather station.
CURRENT WEATHER AND SOIL DATA
With Meteobot you get the following data, updated as often as 10 minutes:
- Rain – amount (l/m2) and intensity (l/h)
- Soil temperature
- Soil moisture – at up to 3 different depths
- Аir temperature
- Air humidity
- Air pressure
- Wind speed
- Wind direction
- Leaf wetness
All data is securely stored securely in the Meteobot cloud for an unlimited period of time. Thus, there are no gaps or omissions – as compared to manual records keeping on paper.
LOCAL WEATHER FORECAST
Meteobot provides you with a local weather forecast for the specific area you are interested in. The weather forecast is for 10 days ahead. For the first two days, data is provided on an hourly basis, and from day 3 to day 10 – in 6 hours’ periods. The forecast is global. Its spatial accuracy is 8 km. The forecast is generated by the European Center for Medium-Range Weather Forecasts, whose weather model was named one of the most precise in the world.
Based on data from weather stations, the Meteobot app calculates the following essential agronomic indicators:
- Rain sum
- Precipitation on weekly and monthly basis
- Temperature sum
- Average daily temperature
- Leaf wetness duration (hours)
Because Meteobot is specialized for farming, it keeps weather stations data in your fields’ history. The only thing you need to do is to outline the boundaries of your fields on the map. Once you have done it, you get a complete agro-meteorological history from the moment a weather station was installed nearby. The main advantage of Meteobot is that you receive data from your own weather station (or from another one nearby), and not from a weather device miles away from your land.
Using data from weather stations, Meteobot® App calculates and sends alerts for the following agro-meteorological indicators:
- Average daily temperature above 10⁰С
- Average soil temperature above 10⁰С
- Intensive precipitation (more than 1 liter / min.)
- First autumn chill
- Spring chill
