Weather data helps farmers make more accurate decisions. In this article, we'll explain what data is available in the OneSoil apps, where to find it, and how to use it.

💡 All weather data is sourced from WorldWeatherOnline.

Weather Forecast

Weather stations help you prepare for temperature changes and manage irrigation. For example, weather data is used to determine the best time to apply liquid fertilizer, which helps control disease and pests.

You can check the 7-day weather forecast: temperature and humidity, rainfall and its probability, wind speed and dew point.

💻 In the OneSoil web app and Pro version, weather information is available in the 'Status' tab.

When navigating the map, you can also see the change in weather conditions for any location in a small widget at the bottom of the screen.

📱 To access the weather forecast in the mobile app, go to the "Insights" tab. There you will also find a recommendation scale for spraying times windows.

💡 The OneSoil Scouting mobile app allows you to track the movement of rain clouds over your fields on a precipitation map. This helps plan your work and avoid unnecessary trips to the fields.

Crop development charts

Check how much heat and moisture your plants are getting!

In the 'Status' tab, you can also find charts that help you track crop development. These include NDVI, accumulated precipitation, and growing degree days charts. Select the desired field and set the period for which you need information.

🌿 NDVI chart

The chart displays the change in the average NDVI on the field.

🌧️ Accumulated precipitation chart

The accumulated precipitation chart allows you to assess how much precipitation the soil received. Use this information for yield prediction and more accurate fertilizer dose calculations.

🌡️ Growing degree-days (GDD) chart

This chart helps predict growth stages and plan fieldwork, such as the application of nitrogen fertilizers or pesticides.

To calculate growing degree days, we:

  • Add the maximum and minimum temperatures for the day.

  • Divide the sum by two to get the average temperature.

  • Subtract the crop's base temperature. The base temperature is the minimum threshold below which plant development stops. Base temperatures may vary for different crops in different countries.

⏳ For what period can I view weather data?

You can view accumulated precipitation, GDD, and NDVI charts from 2016 onwards. To do this, add seasons starting from 2016 and input the crops and planting dates. The charts will be displayed separately for each season.

That's it! Wishing you great weather and timely rainfall! ☀️🌧🌈
