High Resolution Earth Observations allow timely weather forecasts
Low Cost weather sensors allow hyperlocal weather data
Satellite based Earth Observation & low-cost personal weather devices allow users to obtain localised & timely updates to help plan their cropping activities. These updates are in the form of precipitation estimation or adverse phenomena such as severe thunderstorms and hailstorms.
Depending on individual crop needs and rainfall patterns, users are notified about irrigation requirements. This allows efficient water usage, ensuring the fields are always adequately watered and also prevents flooding of crop fields from excessive irrigation.
Weather conditions are wonderful predictors for pest activity & outbreak
Machine Learning allows instant detection of crop pests & diseases
Weather observation driven Pest Prediction and smartphone based Pest Identification allow farmers to apply timely biological control for protecting the crops from pests & diseases, bypassing the use of harmful pesticides that kill marine life.
