The barrier of traditional farming technology is getting closer and closer to disappearing with the help of digital tools that perfect and minimise each of the tasks.
There is nothing as predictable and unpredictable as the weather, especially in recent years where the variation of meteorological catastrophes has plagued the entire sector with uncertainty.
What are the benefits of installing agrometeorological stations?
The installation of agroclimatic stations helps when it comes to making decisions, facilitating the planning of tasks with a much more precise and millimetric calculation of the climatology. This makes it possible to minimise the impact of inclement weather or irregularities such as frost, torrential rain, drought, wind or even pests.
The agrometeorological stations are linked and connected to a meteorological information service that guarantees the transmission of data and variables. Once the data has been collected by the platform, the station sends the data to the irrigation and fertigation system, which, based on the information received, will be able to make decisions adapted to the irrigation and fertilisation of the crop.
There is an infinite number of software available on the market. However, thanks to AgriSatwebGIS you will be able to have all the available information collected comfortably on the same platform where you can observe all kinds of variables.
How to install an agroclimatic station?
The installation is quite simple and intuitive, besides being mobile, which facilitates its assembly and disassembly for its displacement. Above all, the location is an important variable that will determine the data reports generated by the station.
We recommend choosing a location that combines altitude, latitude, orientation and protection for effective data collection.
The ideal agroclimatic station for your crop depends on the plantation you have and the environment in which it is located, and you can implement the measurement variables that best suit your conditions. Above all, if your crop is located in a high altitude area or if we are talking about an area with a high frequency of frosts, wind and temperature are indispensable variables that you will have to monitor more exhaustively.
