Weather API for Agriculture

API for Agriculture

Modern agriculture can optimize resources and yields with accurate weather data. Our spatially high-resolution weather forecasts support agriculture in short-term and long-term work and production planning. Our weather API provides the relevant data such as soil temperature, evapotranspiration, precipitation or sunshine duration for planning and monitoring applications. The API also provides climatological time series, if required, e.g. to train a disease model or other algorithm based on past data.
