Weather will always play a significant role in agriculture, but its impacts and forcing are not always clear and its predictability will always carry uncertainty.  As weather data continually improves, there will be a push to further integrate it with other datasets to develop more optimal insights and improve decision making.  MDA has provided weather information in addition to soil, imagery, and other remote sensing data to customers for nearly 40 years – and now looks to deepen its analytics by leveraging the latest in technology AND integrating our customers’ feedback into premier agricultural solutions.  Through state-of-the-science modeling and a deep suite of environmental monitoring capabilities at relevant levels and resolutions, MDA continues to develop new ways of marrying weather data – observed, real time, and forecasts - to our continually evolving high-value remote sensing capabilities and exploiting our scientific skill sets with a focus on developing tools that matter.
