In this modern data-driven agronomy business, one of the essential things farmers can do for their fields is to set up effective weather advisory. Agriculture helps them handle frequent difficulties and optimize their labor, water use, and crop health.
Thanks to the IoT, you may now remotely gather data continuously. Connected sensors capture the critical data you want to monitor. The following information may be collected across fields, regardless of their closeness. This is transmitted worldwide to your phone, computer, or tablet, where you may view it.
According to the NCAER (National Council of Applied Economic Research), timely weather advisory for agriculture to farmers significantly impacts their revenues. Farmers that took preventative measures based on official agro-meteorology advisories reported an increase in revenue of up to 50%.
According to the survey, “98% of farmers modified at least one of the nine key procedures in response to weather advisories”.
The 9 practices included in the weather alert were as follows:
The investigation discovered a clear relationship between a farmer’s annual revenue and agricultural operations modifications depending on weather advisories. According to NCAER calculations, the average yearly income of a farming household that ignored advice was Rs 1.98 lakh.
This revenue increased to Rs 2.43 lakh for a farmer who made 1-4 changes. The report calculated the annual income to be Rs 2.45 lakh, with modification numbers growing from 5 to 8 practices. Farmers who implemented all 9 measures earned Rs 3.02 lakh per year.
You can better see and estimate incoming rainfall, humidity, temperatures, and freezes by remotely obtaining specific data on the weather in your fields. This can assist you in better preparing your crops for weather situations such as frost, drought, or excessive rain.
Farmers reap several benefits from monitoring the data and indicators listed above, including increased production quality and quantity. Other advantages include:
