Weather and Agronomic Information for Small Holder Farmers
Weather aWhere™ provides real-time, localized weather data and field-level agronomic intelligence across the agriculture
value chain – from research centers to agriculture businesses – even into the hands of small holder farmers. aWhere clients
use this daily weather data and agronomic insight to support research programs, or deliver it to third party developers for
distribution to their customers, via mobile applications.
In developing countries, farmers often rely on traditional farming practices based on observed weather patterns that have been
passed down generationally, but increasing global weather variability has rendered many of these practices ineffective. With a
basic mobile phone, small holder farmers can receive real-time weather forecasts, alerts, and field recommendations generated
by Weather aWhere and delivered through mobile services providers. Now small holder farmers can make in-field decisions such
as what day to plant and harvest, which helps to maximize their yield.
- Forecast and historical weather information fine-tuned for agricultural decisions.
- Up to date alerts of pest, disease and other risks for each farm location and crop type.
- Growing degree units (GDUs), seasonal analysis and comparisons.
- Developer Community portal supports rapid deployment of aWhere data through third party applications to the farmer.
