2023 will be the year where Farmable starts working with the rest of the AgTech ecosystem. Our farm management features are now quite mature, well adopted by our early users, and allow farmers to document most of their daily operations in the fields. It’s time to expand our feature offering, and we are not going to build everything ourselves - it’s better to integrate with partners who already know their specialties much better than us.
At Farmable, we focus on helping our customers easily comply with farming regulations, this includes a lot of documentation, and some of these are weather related, e.g.:
Clearly, any good farm management system needs to facilitate good agricultural practices through the use of accurate data from local farm weather stations.
Davis Instruments knows weather stations. Over the past 50 years, they have sold more than half a million weather stations and is the most recognized brand out there. They fulfill all our requirements, like being easy to install and use. They rely on modern connectivity solutions, cloud storage, and efficient API communication. Also, many of our users already have Davis weather stations, and we’d like to allow them to connect their existing installations with Farmable.
Davis Instruments was, therefore, a natural choice for our first integration.
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:
If you already have a Davis weather station connected to the cloud and an associated WeatherLink account, you can go ahead and connect it to your Farmable account. Visit the Add-on section in the app.
If you don’t have a Davis weather station, we’ll be happy to provide you with one. You can order directly from the app if you’re based in Germany or Australia. If you’re anywhere else in the world, please reach out, and we’ll happy to help you and see what we can do for you.
