Our models are made available to everyone on decisionfarm.ca to ensure farmers have the environmental information they need to make more informed management decisions and increase profitability on the farm.Read More
Weather INnovations specializes in providing high quality and timely weather data to our clients. Observed weather data from our network of stations allows for accurate site specific customized data solutions. Forecast weather data is required to fill in gaps where stations do not exist and to drive some of our key models including SPRAYcast. Crop Heat Unit (CHU) and Growing Degree Day (GDD) are calculated using temperature values and are used to assist growers to select suitable hybrids and varieties and determine how the season is progressing. While rainfall data is important to understand how much water crops receive, Evapotranspiration (ET) data can be equally as important to show how much moisture is being lost and can be helpful with proper timing of irrigation.Read More
WIN’s continually expanding environmental monitoring network includes weather stations spread across Ontario, Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Michigan and Western Europe.

Some of the network is deployed for water and infrastructure monitoring projects ranging from stream level monitoring, water pressure/valve monitoring, flood monitoring, Temperature and moisture monitoring of grain bins, and Temperature inversion towers.Read More
GIS & Mapping
GIS(Geographic Information Systems) is a powerful tool for interpreting and representing the data we collect.The ability to look at data represented on a map or chart can bring concepts and patterns into focus that might otherwise be lost when looking at raw data. Weather INnovations mapping includes rainfall, crop heat unit (CHU), temperature, overnight low, deoxynivalenol (DON), Disease Severity (DSV), Fusarium Head Blight Risk and more. WIN can also create customized maps to suit your needs.Read More
