The Agrometeorological Station (Agro-Met) is another derivative station using the advanced remote data-acquisition unit (arQ) geared with multi-parameter weather sensors which can simultaneously measure wind speed speed and direction; air temperature; air humidity; air pressure, rain amount, duration and intensity, soil moisture and temperature, solar radiation, and sunshine duration.

About Agro-Met


The Agrometeorological Station (Agro-Met) is another derivative station using the advanced remote data-acquisition unit (arQ) geared with multi-parameter weather sensors which can simultaneously measure wind speed speed and direction; air temperature; air humidity; air pressure, rain amount, duration and intensity, soil moisture and temperature, solar radiation, and sunshine duration. The station gets data from the sensor for transmission via SMS or Satellite network.The device was developed to reduce vulnerability of the agriculture specifically resource-poor upland farmers and communities to the impacts of climate change and related natural disasters through timely and accurate data monitoring. Station is equipped with the following components:

  • One (1) unit Advanced Remote Data-Acquisition Unit (arQ)
  • One (1) unit Multi-parameter sensor
  • One (1) unit Rain gauge sensor
  • Two (2) units Soil moisture and temperature sensor
  • One (1) unit 15W Solar Panel
  • One (1) Mechanical Mountings and sensor housing
