RainWise, Inc. Spotlights Importance of Agricultural Weather Data
Trenton, ME (AgPR) Aug. 30, 2016 -- RainWise, Inc., www.rainwise.com, believes monitoring weather data can assist farmers in making smarter decisions on the farm, especially with planting, harvesting, insect and disease control, irrigation, fertilization rates and crop selection. These major farming decisions are directly affected by certain weather parameters such as air temperature, precipitation, humidity, wind speed and direction, solar radiation and more. Without keeping tabs on this crucial weather data, farmers would be spending a lot more time and money to produce far less yields.
The Weather Company, an IBM Business, displayed the RainWise AgroMET weather station at the InfoAg 2016 trade show in St. Louis, Missouri, which is the premier event for precision agriculture. Other big names at this show include John Deere, Farmers Edge and The Climate Corporation.
