Weather is the most crucial element in farming as it can influence crop growth and all farm activities carried out during the growing period. Farming based on weather data is crucial to successful farm management. More importantly, it ensures sustainable farming and is essential to achieve healthy crops and increased productivity and profitability.
Jazz Bakhabar Kissan has installed Weather Stations in Attock, Chakwal, Swabi, Badin, Mirpur, Sargodha and Haripur. These weather stations provide real-time weather conditions like air and dew temperature, precipitation, and humidity. As crop growth is closely related to the weather, based on this information, farmers can plan times for sowing, protection, harvesting, right time for crop fertilization and other field activities in order to avoid negative weather effects and yield losses.
As a farmer can’t fight the weather. However, he can adopt the given situation and take additional farm management practices to minimize crop losses. Therefore, accurate information regarding weather is important to plan farm activities without adverse effects.
