VO Pro – Weather Data
“If you don’t like the weather right now, just wait 5 minutes and it will change.” How many times have we heard that, but how true it is. Just this week, (the week of May 11th, 2015) it snowed in Western Nebraska! Many areas with wheat and even corn had freeze damage, and some of those crops will not make a harvest. Other areas have experienced so much rainfall that growers are replanting corn that has been washed out. No matter how we look at it, weather drastically affects our everyday lives. Especially if you are a farmer.
With VO Pro, CropMetrics looks at weather data differently. We look at weather from a precision standpoint and make it field specific. Field specific with historical weather recording such as rainfall totals, but also field specific with forecasting. We track the effect of weather on productive growth stage specific to crop and variety within each individual field! Have you ever had a true field specific weather management system, and how does this differ from other programs you are accustomed to?
