Agrometeorological stations in highly vulnerable agricultural areas

An agrometeorological station uses the advanced remote data-acquisition unit (arQ) geared with multi-parameter weather sensors which can simultaneously measure wind speed speed and direction; air temperature; air humidity; air pressure, rain amount, duration and intensity, soil moisture and temperature, solar radiation, and sunshine duration. The station gets data from the sensor for transmission via SMS or satellite network.

Advantages / Benefits
Reduces vulnerability of the agriculture, specifically resource-poor upland farmers and communities to the impacts of climate change and related natural disasters through timely and accurate data monitoring
also can be used for the dissemination of agricultural meteorological advice, warning, forecast, bulletin and other important information needed by farmers
