In the desire to enrich the user experience and bring the field, and everything that is happening on it, even closer to the iMETOS user, Pessl Instruments developed a new version of FieldClimate for mobile phones.
Whilst the iMETOS brand is certainly not new, METOS UK is. Launched at the end of 2018 to help British farmers and growers, METOS UK is an official Pessl Instruments subsidiary in UK. Let me introduce myself and the company to you. In a nutshell, we exist to offer you excellent weather monitoring technology coupled with experienced UK support.
I’m David Whattoff, Managing Director of METOS UK and an ex Lincolnshire farmer. In fact, I was a Director of our family farming business for 27 years. I know only too well the frustrations that variable weather gives farmers and growers. I too have taken a gamble on when to fertilise and when to harvest – not always getting it right; impacting on my costs.
My agricultural career then took me to SOYL Precision Farming for 8 years. As Agricultural Development Manager, I saw the real benefit of harnessing new technology to deliver a high performance. You could reduce the guesswork and find new ways to increase yields.
2018 presented me with an opportunity of a lifetime. To develop a UK business providing professional weather and climate monitoring technology that truly addresses many of the frustrations that I used to experience first-hand on the farm.
And so, METOS UK was born.
As our weather becomes increasingly unpredictable, I’m determined to help as many farmers and growers as possible make informed decisions. Decisions that will enable them to grow profitability, whilst keeping a handle on their costs.
You might be a family farming business, or you could be a much larger operation. Whatever your agricultural business, the growth potential from being fully connected to your weather is huge. Proactive farmers are using technology like this every day. It’s critical to their business operations. And for good reason.
Technology developed for agriculture
You can buy a wide variety of weather stations. So, why METOS UK? The answer is simple. Born from a long-established global company, Pessl Instruments GmbH, that has invested heavily in agricultural R&D, METOS UK is completely in tune with the needs of farmers and growers. You’re not just one of many markets we serve. You are the market we serve!
Our professional range of hardware and software is built to last. Many iMETOS stations are expandable too, using both WiFi and LPWAN. You can store more than a year’s data to help you with analysis and use far more sensors from one system. Few weather stations are as capable as iMETOS weather stations.
And if your business relies on this technology, it has to be good.
But METOS UK is about knowledgeable service too. We have many UK stockists – they too focus on agriculture. They can help you to decide what system is right for your business. And they’re keen to work with you to get you results.
Of course, I’m always at the end of the phone too, with my experience and knowledge to hand. We’re a British business, forging strong relationships with farming companies in the UK. We’d love to find out how we could help your agricultural business to perform better.
To start a conversation with us, please view our UK stockists page or contact me directly. We’d be delighted to help you.
As you already know, Pessl Instruments started a CHAT project in the last quarter of the year 2018. Together with DunavNET and Zivko Sekulic Farm we are focusing on how can we improve the chicken breeding process. Last week our colleague Manu Arano Martinez visited the farm and installed the iMETOS devices. They will gather information with help of which we are hoping to improve and assure the animal well-being, in this case, chickens.
