Kicking off the year with our first in a series of integrations planned to make Farmable your go-to system to manage your farm data in one place. We started with the integration of weather stations.
Easy farming compliance is a top priority
Davis Instruments was, therefore, a natural choice for our first integration.
Benefits of integrating a weather station with farm management software
Obviously, you get easy access to current weather conditions directly from the map in the Farmable app, but more importantly, the weather data will be used for increased awareness and automated compliance documentation. This is illustrated by three screenshots taken from the app:
- During a spray job, wind conditions may change, and this is hard to observe from the tractor seat. With the integration, the driver gets an immediate warning if wind conditions exceed levels of increased risk of drift.
- The efficacy of chemicals is highly dependent on air temperature and humidity and the combination of these two parameters is called Delta T. With the integration, you’ll get a live Delta T calculation easily available before and during spraying.
- The minimum requirement is to document one weather observation for each spray job. With this weather station integration, we will document weather development throughout the whole spray job, which makes it easier to analyze spray efficacy differences later.
