INTRODUCTION

What is a collaborative weather network?

A collaborative or private weather network at Sencrop refers to a grouping of agro-meteorological stations in a specific area. Every member of this network, whether they are farm managers, advisors or farmers, have access to the Sencrop application and therefore to precision weather data. Each network is managed, personalised and named by the farm.

Unite your staff around an innovative service

The main benefit in creating a private network is allowing the network manager to create a community of farmers around local weather data and thus helping them in their decision making and daily organisation, using the same information. Everyone has access to the weather data from the network stations, for a more collaborative approach.

It is also a way of increasing the level of services offered through the installation of precise measuring tools, giving access to ag-weather services that can be used remotely. This is also an argument for encouraging members to use a decision-support tool.

Finally, it is sometimes tricky to learn how to use a new tool in an already over-equipped sector. At Sencrop, we have developed an application that our users describe as intuitive and easy to use on a daily basis. It helps your members to digitalise their practices.

Analyse territorial weather data accurately at a global and local level

The data collected on the various plots by the agricultural weather stations allows you to consult the past, present and future weather conditions within a given territory. The information collected is used by farmers at a local level, and provides a global view of the territory and its meteorological evolution for managers and advisors, providing a benefit to all.

For a more in-depth overview we have developed an advanced weather analysis tool: Sencrop Analytics, which allows groups to evaluate their data on a much more intricate level.

Sencrop Analytics allows network managers and advisors to generate large data exports or territorial maps on precise data. The information can provide multiple uses: anticipation of growth stages, needs in nitrogen inputs, risks of diseases, localised weather events...

Provide precise and adapted advice

Thanks to the precision weather data collected by our stations, agricultural advisors can provide their farmers with personalised advice, adapted to their specific needs:

Daily ag-weather data updates straight from the fields
Access to data history and to the weather forecast
Stations seamlessly connected to decision support tools

Thanks to this advice, farmers can rationalise chemical treatments, make savings, prevent diseases, the risk of frost and optimise their yield per plot.

THEY CREATED THEIR OWN NETWORK OF STATIONS

We wanted to create added value thanks to a grid of weather stations,

so that everyone could have access to reliable, collaborative weather data. All technicians are equipped to monitor data within their own area and can connect with the farmers.

THEY CREATED THEIR OWN NETWORK OF STATIONS

The request for a network came from some of our members who were developing an interest in smart objects and weather stations.

To start mapping out our grid, we first implemented 15 stations. We now have 50 and hope to equip every farmer in the future.
