Weather Monitoring in Agriculture

How do you monitor weather in agriculture to increase operational efficiencies?

Why is accurate weather monitoring important to agriculture?

Due to our geographical location as an island nation, weather conditions in New Zealand, particularly in coastal and alpine areas, which are often locations for agriculture, can be harsh environments for the accurate monitoring of weather. High winds, rain, corrosive salt air, snow and the strength of our summer sun can wreak havoc on remote weather stations and monitoring sensors. Many of our primary industries such as agriculture (dairy, meat and wool) rely heavily on accurate weather reporting of variables such as wind, rain, sun, and humidity to maximise yields and profitability.

Rugged sensors suited to New Zealand conditions

Rugged sensors suited to New Zealand conditions create rich sets of weather data

The ability to monitor weather conditions accurately in real-time can play a crucial role in decision making across the agriculture industry. Live data for weather variables such as wind speed and direction, air temperature, humidity and rainfall may all be important factors in determining the course of a wide range of events.

Accurate and constant monitoring of these variables can aid in critical decision making which focuses on reducing resource wastage and environmental impact and maximising efficiencies and profitability. The live weather data is sent to the Adroit platform where it can be viewed from any connected device including mobile. Our ruggedly constructed professional Gill MaxiMet weather stations are made of high-quality, accurate and reliable sensors that require low maintenance and are easy to install.
