US: Schneider Electric is connecting more than 4,000 disparate rural area Weather Stations to provide a more holistic view of rural weather patterns across the US. Leveraging its big data and IoT-enabled WeatherSentry platform, the company is introducing more precise forecasting to increase efficiency, profitability, and output for the US agricultural industry, including farmers, ranchers and landowners. WeatherSentry sensors capture field-level weather and soil conditions that help in creating accurate localized temperature and precipitation forecasts, alongside storm record archives and historical weather logs, to help assess and plan for the weather’s impact on day-to-day agriculture operations. The patform is believed to generate more rural area agricultural data than any other provider.
