Weather Data Roundtable

Grand BC
Thu, Jul 27, 2017
9:00 AM to 11:00 AM

 

During this panel discussion, Chacko Jacob will highlight the latest innovations in advanced weather models, analytics and provide a glimpse of what the future holds for decision support and artificial intelligence solutions within Agriculture. Weather not only affects how crops grow but the logistics around planting, harvesting, and transportation. By integrating weather forecast models into crop planting and harvesting and transportation, better decisions can be made in advance of crop losses due to weather perils. Weather data and analytics on field-by-field or zone-by-zone basis helps farmers make informed decisions throughout the year to maximize food production, minimize environmental impact, and reduce operating costs.
