How can Meteobot® help you? 

Take a quick test – how many of the questions below do you ask yourself?

  • Green sprouts in the rain

    Rainfall

    • Has it rained in the field and how much
    • Is the field accessible with heavy machinery
    • Is it suitable for spraying and harvesting
    • What is the total rainfall since the beginning of the year
    • When did it rain for the last time
    • Has there been enough precipitation during important plant growth stages
    • Is there risk of soil erosion

  • Soil temperature, sowing wheat

    Soil temperature

    • What was the average daily temperature during the last few days
    • Is the soil frozen
    • Is there a risk of nitrogen fertilizer loss due to denitrification
    • Is the temperature appropriate for germination and emergence
    • What is the soil temperature at 2-5 cm depth – is there a risk of frost

    Meteobot measures the temperature regularly and gives you the trend. Basic thermometers show you the current temperature only, and not the average daily temperature.

  • Soil moisture

    Soil moisture

    • How much of the rainfall has actually penetrated the soil and to what depth
    • What is the soil moisture at 5-10 cm depth – is it suitable for seeding, germination and emergence
    • Is there enough moisture for the plants to absorb nitrogen fertilizer
    • How much reserve water is there in the deeper soil layers
    • Is it necessary to irrigate

    Equipped with soil moisture sensors, Meteobot shows you the trend –
    is soil moisture decreasing or increasing, so that you can plan your activities accordingly. Soil moisture values between 70 and 100% are considered optimal for plant development.

  • Frost, air temperature

    Air temperature

    • What has been the average daily temperature during the last few days
    • Is there a danger of frosts
    • Is the temperature suitable for spraying
    • Is there any disease risk
    • What is the temperature sum up to now
    • When has vegetation resumed in spring (e.g. above 5⁰С for winter wheat)
    • Is wheat or oilseed rape optimally conditioned for the coming winter

    Meteobot measures the temperature continually, so you can see the trend – during the day it could be warm but in the evening the temperature might fall below zero.

  • Strong wind, crop spraying

    Wind

    • Is it suitable to spray – strong winds make spraying inefficient
    • Are the conditions optimal for blooming and pollination

    With Meteobot, you always know the wind speed in your field and can easily plan your plant protection activities.

  • Air humidity

    Air humidity

    • Is there any disease risk
    • Are the conditions optimal for blooming and pollination

    You are always a step ahead of diseases and insects with Meteobot.

  • leaf wetness

    Leaf wetness

    • Is there any disease risk
    • Is it suitable to spray

    Meteobot calculates the hours when leaves have been wet. This information helps you make timely plant protection decisions.

If you regularly ask yourself at least three of the questions, then Meteobot® is the smart solution that will make your work easier.
