IoT-based Data Monitoring for Crops sensors are helping farmers around the globe maintain their knowledge of their fields and better predict any quick or slow changes in the weather. Data will help farmers and land owners better understand the best times of the year collect on crops.
You own a small business and one of your most important assets is a couple of acres land that you use primarily for growing crops. One of your worst enemies is the weather. It can cause delays, discomfort for livestock, and sometimes major damage to the business. Can you ever avoid this? Will there ever be a solution?
We know that loss due to weather is unpredictable and hard avoid. But is it entirely hard to avoid? Let us assume that the weather man is standing right outside your land, maybe even in the middle. Just like this:
Now he is there for hours and sometimes he stays there for 24 hours and 7 days a week. He is looking for clues constantly scanning his surrounding looking for air speed change, wind blow direction, heat index, humidity and so on. As he is “feeling” or even measuring with his advanced equipment, he is also collecting all of the data. Waiting, just waiting to see a change, and based on his learned experience. He can make a fast prediction on whether a bad weather is going to occur or not. So if anything happens on your land that could cause damage, you will be first to know. Get your stocks together and head on out. Not only this, but since he has been recording all this data for possibly years. You now can have a pretty accurate predictions on specifically your area, what the weather might be.
What if I told you, that you can now have your own weather man in the middle of your land, but looks a little different. That is where IoT Data Monitoring for Crops sensors are best used. They look more like this:
What is a weather monitoring station?
- Multi-sensor inputs monitoring data instantaneously ranging from wind direction, speed to the first drop of rain or when it is about to rain.
- Sends data to the nearest data center or your own data server.
- Data servers collect data and analyze the data to make sense out of them and create actions.
- Learns from experience, prediction will get better as data expands.
- Partner up with your neighbor and share weather data to create a wider network of monitoring.
