Description

The DTN Ag Weather Tools app for the Apple iPhone — enhanced to provide additional mobile decision support.

The agriculture industry’s first weather app delivers exclusive GPS-based roaming alerts, top-rated forecasts, touch screen interactive weather displays and unique ag commentary. This app helps producers improve operational planning with highly-local farm-level forecasts, and gives them advance notice to weather risks via customized alerts.

Highlights:
• Gauge — track current and historical precipitation and evapotranspiration data with farm-level precision.

• Patented roaming alerts — create custom alert thresholds for forecasted and observed weather conditions, precipitation amounts, dangerous storm attributes, and more. Our app automatically updates your preferences with our exclusive, location-sensitive roaming alert technology. This ensures that you will be the first to know when weather will impact your current location.

• DTN WindMonitor® — receive advanced notice on your Apple iPhone to let you know when winds will be too strong for spraying.

• PrecipTimer® — know in advance when precipitation will start, how strong it will be, and what time it will end at your farm.

• Interactive weather maps — access comprehensive layered satellite maps, animated radar, future radar, storm corridors, temperature, dew point, humidity, wind direction, and precipitation amounts.

• Site-specific weather forecasts — get 36 hours of detailed hourly forecasts and 15 days of long-range forecasts — continually updated for the most current information.

• Observed conditions — site-specific data for the temperature, humidity and wind that has impacted your farm.

• Monitor multiple locations — receive alerts for where you are working as well as other locations of concern

• Agriculture weather news & analysis — stay up to date with detailed weather-focused content from DTN’s meteorologists and journalists — including a daily market weather outlook video.

We added DTN Spray Outlook for the 2018 growing season:

• Fully customizable thresholds and transparent calculations to identify your next and future spray windows
• Real-time awareness of relevant changing weather conditions
• Multi-location view to manage resources across time and distance
• Field-level actionable insights for users in the DTN Ag Weather Station Network

The forecasted spray windows included in DTN’s Spray Outlook are for planning purposes based on your nearest authorized weather station and are not a substitute for checking actual conditions in your field at the time of application per label directions.
