The NEXT weather stations aim to help farmers to manage their land in a way that looks ahead and saves resources and time. The stations are intended to support farmers by providing the necessary data they need for the optimal supply of their fields. They measure rainfall, wind speeds, humidity, air and soil temperatures as well as other essential information. The weather stations are being placed directly in the field to be monitored. Power is supplied by built-in rechargeable batteries and a solar panel. Since a data connection usually cannot be established remotely without an own local wide area network that comes with additional expensive costs for installation and hardware, SIM cards are integrated in the station for communication via cellular mobile networks. But this usually involves additional costs for the mobile connection of their products, which are difficult for FarmFacts to calculate. Costs that unnecessarily complicate the product, make it more expensive and therefore less attractive for customers.
