PESSL OFFERS HELP TO UKRAINIAN FARMERS
Planting, sowing, and all other farming processes are hard work. We can only imagine how tough they can get during such a crisis that Ukraine is going through now.
That is why Pessl Instruments, in cooperation with meteoblue, decided to offer aid to Ukrainian farmers so that the work on farms would continue undistracted during the crisis.
AID FOR UKRAINIAN FARMERS
with iMETOS VWS
We offer help with a free weather forecast and disease modeling licenses with iMETOS VWS.
iMETOS VWS virtual weather station is a virtual weather station with no physical sensors that requires no maintenance. We find this feature especially important, since going to the fields is now very limited and possibly even dangerous for Ukrainian farmers.
With iMETOS VWS farmers will get a complete decision support service that provides:
- weather forecast,
- weather monitoring,
- disease models,
- help with irrigation management,
- help deciding when to spray, fertilize, …
- and other work planning tools (sowing window, field accessibility, harvest window, …).
iMETOS VWS will help look into the future and anticipate potential problems related to pest infestation, fungal, bacterial, or any other type of disease. The weather forecast will give site-specific and real-time weather data for a better understanding of what is happening in the fields and that will support the planning of the future farming activities.
“We always put the farmers first. That’s why it is important to us to help those in need when we have the chance. With offering free licenses for disease modeling and weather forecasting we will aid Ukrainian farmers to plan their activities only when it’s really needed. So their work will be undisrupted, but they will be kept safe.”
