Local Weather Forecast
The iMeteo®PRO system is the perfect combination between forecast and historical weather data. It is a weather station installed directly in the field that offers air temperature and precipitation data, plus a seven- day weather forecast with the most important variables for Agriculture. Easy to install, the meteorological data is generated in real time with high precision at affordable costs.
The difference between iMeteo®PRO and traditional meteorological services offered on the Internet and TV is that the latter are generated for large regions and may not use real data, but estimations based on “close" weather stations. With the iMeteo®PRO system, the forecast is generated on demand, and better: it is a highly accurate forecast focused on Agriculture, that uses actual data from the weather station.
How does this service work?
The farmer receives an iMeteo®PRO station to install on his chosen field. The system is independent and all necessary items for its functioning are already included. Before benefitting of this service, the customer must check GSM coverage on the property and inform the best mobile carrier for that specific location. This service can be hired for a period of at least one year.
The forecast technology used by iMeteo®PRO is provided by Meteoblue, a swiss meteorological institute, based on a modern Numerical Mesoscale Model Meteorological Forecasting. This high resolution forecast, combined with a local weather data post-processing, ensures accuracy high levels.
