Schneider Electric is leveraging its big data and Internet of Things (IoT)-enabled WeatherSentry platform to connect more than 4,000 disparate rural area weather stations. The platform will provide a more holistic view of rural weather patterns across the US, helping the agriculture industry to increase efficiency, profitability and sustainability.

WeatherSentry sensors capture field-level weather and soil conditions that are used to create accurate localized temperature and precipitation forecasts, alongside storm record archives and historical weather logs, to help farmers, ranchers and landowners assess and plan for the weather’s impact on day-to-day operations.
