AGRICULTURE & FOREST METEOROLOGY
Agrometeorological Station for agriculture has the main objective to determine the environmental condition for crop management, frost prediction, and careful management of irrigation system, crop protection, and analysis of phytopathology of plants. Meteoxperts follows all the phases of work, offering specific solutions to specific needs. All sensors are designed to ensure the accuracy of the measurement that meets WMO (World Meteorological Organization).
Components of Weather Station for the Agrometeorology:
Anemometer– Measures wind direction and speed.
Thermometer – Measures atmospheric temperature.
Pyranometer – Measures solar radiation levels from the sun in watts per square meter (used to calculate ‘Evapotranspiration’, the rate at which water evaporates from the soil).
Leaf Wetness Sensor – Measures surface moisture of the plants on a scale of 0-15 (dry to saturated). Data from these sensors are used in fungal disease control.
Soil Moisture Sensor – Measures water levels in the soil
Soil Temperature Sensor – Monitors the soil temperature to detect freezing or high temperatures that can put crops at risk. It is also used to calculate the rate of Evapotranspiration.
Hygrometer – Measures relative humidity using a percentage measure of water vapor in the air.
Barometer – Measures atmospheric pressure to predict precipitation
Rain Gauge – Measures liquid precipitation using an open container. They usually empty automatically and measure the amount of rainfall over a given time interval.
UV Sensor – Measures UV rays from the sun. These sensors are used for precision growing in particular crops like cannabis, where overexposure to UV-rays can stunt leaf growth or affect potency.
