New feature: weather forecast

December 11, 2019

30MHz platform update

Let us introduce you to the new weather forecast function within the 30MHz data platform. 🌦️

Predictive weather is now possible in the dashboard, add the values of rain, rain in mm, wind speed, temperature and global radiation in e.g. charts vs your crop level conditions or individual widgets.

 

 

Easily read out your data combined with the past weather forecast and see the upcoming weather forecast for up to a week.

This means, no more looking for the weather forecast online or on our phones! Check it out below:

 

Sebastien Namias from Enza zaden France about how they use meteo data:

About meteo data: we use it to adapt watering and more generally part of crop management of our open field crops (Example: adapting the time you spray in the day if the temperature is too high). It can also give some explanations of what we can observe in some crops. E.g. for our pollination in pumpkin, pollen has more difficulty to geminate above 28°C, the temperature can be the reason for many failures. This information can be useful as well for people and infrastructure.

We need to adapt work for certain extreme weather (e.g. we got about 45° last June for 2-3 days). Adaptation of work related to extreme weather will be organized internally and we will set rules so we need some measurements to apply these rules. Same for infrastructure, in autumn we can have heavy rains (About 400 mm during last 2 months, but I already could see 100 mm in 1 hour), these rains can be very localized so it is good that people can check the intensity of rain to avoid going on-site only for that during weekend shifts for example.

These are tools we already have and use, but these are basic and quite manual (e.g. we have to empty our pluviometer by hand), and nothing is registered so we can’t trace back the history. Roughly that’s it, so this is really to have general climate data for diverse uses. We will look a bit more deeply at that too.

 

How can we help you digitise your cultivation process?
Analyse all kinds of information from different data sources such as climate computers, sensors and manual input in a central platform. Improve the production process of your crops, plants, seeds or bulbs together with advisors, distributors and researchers. We are happy to talk to you about which service model is most suitable for your company.

Cultivation variables explained: growing degree units

In this blog, we would like to tell you something about growing degree units (GDH / GDD). The reason we added this to our dashboard is that during a lot of conversations our users often ask for this. Degree hour insights are used to pro-actively control cultivation. Growers however indicate that the calculation is time-consuming ...

Autonomous growing is no longer a far-fetched dream

The Autonomous Greenhouse Challenge has come to an end and we made it to the finish line. Our multidisciplinary team of horticultural experts and computer scientists from Delphy and 30MHz grew healthy cherry tomatoes remotely in 6 month’s time. In this period, we were able to develop the system and models needed to control a ...

From scale-up to full-fledged company

30MHz has grown considerably in recent years. We have become a stable and reliable player in the horticultural sector. As a small start-up, we built the first foundations of our current data platform in 2015. Such as the cloud structures needed to store large amounts of crop data and make them available for analysis. Even ...
