Agro metrological parameters at weather station.

Agro metrological parameters at weather station. 

A agrometeorological station is a station that simultaneously provides detailed meteorological and biological information and where research in agrometeorology is carried out. In both meteorological and biological fields the equipment, range and frequency of observations and professional personnel are such that fundamental investigations of agrometeorological questions of interest to the countries or regions concerned can be made.
A typical agricultural meteorological station is a station that provides meteorological and biological information on a regular basis, simultaneously, and may be equipped to assist in research on specific problems; In general, a program of biological or phenological observations for research will be related to the station's local climate and local agriculture.
An auxiliary agrometeorological station provides information on soil temperature and moisture, potential evapotranspiration, duration of plant wetness, detailed measurements of the lowest layer of the atmosphere and biological information on phenology, incidence and prevalence of plant diseases, etc. A station that provides weather information like this.
The agrometeorological station uses an advanced remote data-acquisition unit consisting of multi-parameter weather sensors that can simultaneously measure wind speed and direction; air temperature; humidity in the air; Air pressure, quantity, duration and intensity of rainfall, soil moisture and temperature, solar radiation and duration of sunshine. The station receives data from the sensor to transmit via SMS or satellite network. transmission via SMS or satellite network.

Advantages / Benefits

  • Reduces the vulnerability of agriculture, particularly resource-poor upland farmers and communities, to the impacts of climate change and related natural disasters through timely and accurate data monitoring.
  • Also used for dissemination of agrometeorological advisories, warnings, forecasts, bulletins and other important information required by farmers.


  • Expensive to implement
