Weather information is imperative to all aspects of agriculture. It is necessary for analyzing crop rotations and planting, timing field maintenance programs, planning effective crop spraying, or deciding when to harvest.
Farmers are able to use WeatherBug Agriculture Solutions to make decisions on pest control, spray operations, soil moisture monitoring and many other decisions that may help maximize yields. Speculators, millers and other market participants use this information for pricing decisions. WeatherBug Agriculture Solutions provide tools to help farmers make day-to-day operational decisions.
