Why should I use the weather forecast in Atfarm?

With free field weather forecasts from The Weather Company by IBM in our Atfarm web app, you can plan your fertiliser applications up to 5 days in advance. You'll never miss a good spreading or spraying day again and optimise your fertiliser efficiency.




For each of your fields, you can see detailed hourly breakdowns of


  • Daily temperature
  • Humidity
  • Wind speed
  • Precipitation


Hourly application windows let you know if the weather conditions are suitable for spraying or spreading in that field.


You can access an extended forecast for the next 5 days by clicking on the Extended Forecast button. In this view you can select whether your fertiliser is of high or low quality to optimise application recommendations. You can also check air and soil temperature and dew point.


Please note:

The recommendations aren't crop or season specific. Any recommendations are meant as a guide and must be adapted to suit local conditions.
