Pre­cise data gives the in­sight you need

Central and North Rural Weekly - - MAINTENANCE FEATURE -

DTN has launched Spray Out­look – a ground-break­ing ad­vance­ment in agri­cul­tural oper­a­tions, pre­vi­ously not avail­able.

This new tech­nol­ogy is em­pow­er­ing agri­cul­tural pro­duc­ers to make ef­fec­tive plan­ning and sched­ul­ing de­ci­sions for chem­i­cal crop spray­ing. Through ac­cu­rate wind and rain fore­casts, this new fea­ture of DTN’s ex­clu­sive WeatherSen­try tech­nol­ogy is pro­vid­ing op­er­a­tors with pre­cise in­sights nec­es­sary to max­imise pro­duc­tion and ef­fi­ciency.

With DTN’s WeatherSen­try Spray Out­look, farm­ers no longer have to spray twice due to rain di­rectly after or spray­ing in highly windy con­di­tions.

Know­ing the right con­di­tions also avoids cross con­tam­i­na­tion.

Both Delta-T and in­ver­sion risk are fac­tored into DTN’s com­pre­hen­sive assess­ment of fu­ture spray­ing con­di­tions, pro­vid­ing a com­pet­i­tive ad­van­tage for users of Spray Out­look.

With 20 per cent more ac­cu­rate fore­casts than those made with­out the in­put of lo­cal real-time weather data, WeatherSen­try Global Agri­cul­tural Edi­tion ex­tends DTN’s ca­pa­bil­i­ties, to give farm­ers greater con­trol over fac­tors in­flu­enced by the en­vi­ron­ment such as yield, pest de­vel­op­ment and op­er­a­tional plan­ning.

To en­sure re­li­a­bil­ity, time­li­ness and ac­cu­racy, WeatherSen­try sum­marises hourly, daily and monthly weather con­di­tions. This al­lows pro­duc­ers to ag­gre­gate in­for­ma­tion rel­e­vant to their crops while avoid­ing the fi­nan­cial im­pli­ca­tions of rain fast pe­ri­ods and crop con­tam­i­na­tion. There is only a small re­cur­ring charge for WeatherSen­try, after the one-time pur­chase of DTN’s Agri­cul­tural Weather Sta­tion hard­ware.
