ClearAg from Iteris for Agriculture Weather Decision Support

Iteris has released a new suite of weather products geared to the agriculture industry.  The ClearAg suite is a customizable suite that allows access to current and historical soil temperatures, current and historical weather down to 1km by 1km grids, including estimated rainfall and hail damage areas.  Some products are in the lower 48 Unitied States, other products are global.

Iteris is allowing a reseller license program to use this technology as a rebranded or part of a larger agriculture decision support solution.  They allow customizable programmable APIs to work into multiple data platforms, stand alone or mobile.

As you have read in past posts, this can work with future growth in UAVs in farm fields in the future, UAV captured data will be captured on a larger scale with better resolution than 1km by 1km, but this is the meteorological component with agriculture growth and damage assessment solutions.

(Disclaimer, this is being done in Iteris’ Grand Forks North Dakota branch and I am a former employee of Meridian Environmental Technology, its former name).
