Agrifying Weather Data: Making a Difference in Precision Farming

The main daily topic of conversation for a farmer is about the weather. Many have resolved that the weather is unpredictable, citing the local forecaster from their nightly news as always being wrong for their field. What many don't realize is how accurate and precise weather data has become, down to a 250 yard scale. Understanding what weather events have impacted fields in past season can help farmers react quicker to changing weather conditions with their prescriptions allowing for good yields even in tough growing seasons.  WDT has pioneered increasing the resolution of our weather data globally especially in the realm of precipitation data. At WDT we provide the entire solution from historical weather data on your field to forecasts going out 60 days to provide guidance on drought conditions especially.
