Weather INnovations (WIN), a partner of Glacier Media, is delivering weather monitoring and crop modeling data via a new precision-agriculture initiative in Canada.

The data is incorporated into an online Ag Grower Daily Dashboard tool that provides decision support to the members and customers of AGRIS Cooperative Ltd. and two agribusiness partners.

WIN authored a feasibility study for the project and provided the monitoring and modeling expertise, as well as building in new functionality for the Dashboard under the guidance of the AGRIS Agronomy Team. WIN also manages and hosts the data aggregation and user interface.

“This project allows us to demonstrate the breadth of our data offering to farmers,” said Ian Nichols, CEO of WIN. “AGRIS agronomists are now free to focus their energies on helping their customers optimize their decision making with new information tools. It is part of our broader vision to deliver tools that aid precision agriculture in North America and overseas.”

The AgGrower Dashboard is supported by the federal-provincial Growing Forward II program and Agricultural Adaptation Council.
