DTN has announced that it has added new weather modules to its ag weather solution, WeatherSentry Global Agricultural Edition., including components that focus on spray timing and moisture.
With the addition of Global Precipitation Nowcast, farmers will be better able to understand how much precipitation has occurred over the past three hours in their area. From that data, DTN will provide insights that farmers can use to make informed decisions.
The DTN Spray Outlook tool combines real-time access to weather forecasts, along with customizable parameters for the specific product being sprayed to show the best windows for application time that help minimize spray drift, runoff and other chemical application issues that can negatively impact operations and communities.
The DTN Field Outlook tool combines precipitation and global forecasts to alert producers to the most optimal field workability window.
“We know that our customers want to maximize their growing season, and weather is one of the most important factors they consider when determining the right time to plant, apply chemicals to or harvest any field,” said Jim Block, chief meteorological officer at DTN.
“Our insights provide unmatched precipitation information as well as spray and field visualization that can support their decision making. Our solutions help producers improve operations and avoid costly mistakes and reapplications.”
The new capabilities are now available free of charge to WeatherSentry Global Agriculture Edition subscribers.
