Atmospheric warming leads to increased weather variability both over space and in-time (extremes).  The whole of the agricultural value chain needs agronomically interpreted real-time weather based information to dampen this impact.  From input providers to farmers and markets, ag-weather is an integral need. Predictive analytics delivers insight to farmers and in aggregate, to other segments in the value chain.
