You’ve heard of Good Friday and Easter Monday, well just before both, we introduce…..

—– 27th March 2024 —–

A day to check that piece of equipment that tells you when to seed your crop, lets you know it’s okay to spray and gives you the confidence to throw out a bit more fertiliser.

Be it a ‘fancy pants’ weather station or a humble rain-gauge, we encourage you to get on board and dedicate this March 27th to cleaning out the cobwebs, calibrating, straightening or simply replacing your weather-station to give you the best data this year!

‘Web Wednesday’ emphasises the importance of ensuring weather stations and soil moisture probes are calibrated and maintained year-round. 

“It’s not just about the installation, setting it up and forgetting about it; it’s about calibrating and maintaining these essential tools,” says SCF’s Smart Farms Coordinator, Phil Honey.

Whether you have a high-tech digital weather station or a simple rain gauge, this initiative emphasises the importance of accurate data for informed decision-making throughout the year.

Farmers rely on precise weather data for critical decisions related to seeding, spraying, livestock management, and other farm activities so it is essential that they receive reliable and accurate data from their equipment.
