cultYvate’s multi-sensor AWS provides real-time insights to farmers The weather station automatically monitors wind speed, wind direction, rainfall, solar radiation, air pressure, temperature and humidity in the environment and feeds this data to mobile and web applications.
Having more accurate weather data for the farm allows the farmer to make much more effective agronomic decisions to determine the right time to plant a crop based on rain and temperature readings, choose when to spray pesticides based on wind speed and direction, understand humidity conditions to manage disease control and so forth.
HOW IT WORKS
cultYvate’s AWS can be installed stand-alone and collect data that is passed to the cloud or gateway. This data is further analysed and insights shared as advisory to farmers and clients mobile devices
An anemometer is a device that measures wind speed and direction. It is a common instrument used in weather stations.
The solar panel is an assembly of photovoltaic solar cells mounted in a frame, usually rectangular. The solar panels capture sunlight as a source of radiant energy, which is converted into electric energy in the form of direct current electricity.
Global irradiance is the amount of radiant energy ( electromagnetic radiation from the sun) on a flat surface. It is important to measure irradiance to know how much power a solar project could potentially harvest from the sun. The irradiance is measured in watts per square
A temperature and humidity sensor is a low-cost electronic device that detects, measures and reports both dampness and air temperature. The proportion of moisture noticeable all around the highest amount of moisture at a specific air temperature.
