Weather forecasts for farmers

Helping developing countries increase productivity

In developing countries, the weather doesn’t only affect farmers’ productivity and livelihood; it also has direct consequences for the communities they live in.

all around the world

farmers depend heavily on weather forecasts during the different stages of sowing, planting, irrigating, weeding, growing, harvesting and stocking their crops.

In industrialized countries

accurate weather forecasts are essential to guide their activity and increase productivity.

in developing countries

most farmers have no way of knowing what the local weather has in store due to the absence of local weather services.
Moreover, as poverty rates are already high and infrastructure is often weak, local farmers are even more impacted by weather events.

Depending on the local level of agricultural development, crop yields may vary from
20 to 80%
due to climate variations.
Climate changes may also lead to an increased number of parasites, crop diseases and weeds, which may entail a crop loss of
15%

Custom weather forecasts for well-timed, sustainable farming

Climate changes greatly influence crop yields, both directly (through storms, droughts, floods) and indirectly (crop diseases, parasites…). WeatherForce aims to help farmers in developing countries optimize crop yield by guiding their actions using upcoming weather forecasts. We also integrate additional local parameters to cater to the very specific needs of every farming community.

Our highly local custom weather apps help farmers take into account potential weather risks so they can make informed decisions and act when the timing’s right.
