Long Range Weather for Agriculture

What could be more important to the modern agriculture business than the weather?

When to seed?  When to fertilize?  When to use chemical pesticides?  Which crop?  When to harvest?  What will be the prices next season?  All can be affected by weather.

Optimize your production around weather

  • Confidently make decisions now for the next growing season
  • Have exclusive insight into next years commodity prices
  • Treat your crops at the ideal time to maximize the impact

Additionally, you can look to dryday™ forecasts to help you minimize your weather problems. With this advantage, you can adjust processes during weather-sensitive periods to better fit forecasted drier periods. You will be able to make these decisions with significant odds on your side, for a change.

The dryday™ Advantage

Over the past ten years, agricultural operations planning with dryday™ have enjoyed significant odds on their side with accuracy up to 87%.

Planning on your own puts you at additional risk

During that same time period, dryday™ forecasts outperformed planning on your own by a factor of almost three to one. This means that if you were planning with dryday™ forecasts during that period, roughly three out of four dryday™ forecasts would have provided you better odds over planning on your own.

The opposite is also true, if you were planning on your own, you would have been at a disadvantage around 75% of the time.

What about using other weather forecasts?

  • Media outlets continuously change their 3-10 day forecasts making them unusable for planning.
  • Other long term weather predictions use Climatology (historical averages) to predict the weather. This strategy has proven to be unreliable.

How We Forecast Long Range Weather

dryday™ forecasts are created using a dynamic model of the atmosphere, based on meteorological forces that have been proven by extensive testing to be acting upon our weather.

The way our forecasts are made is similar to how tidal charts are created. The tides are caused by forces (gravitational and centrifugal) between the sun, earth and moon. They are very consistent and can be accurately predicted in the long term. And just like a tidal chart, our weather forecasting model can go out as far as 18 months with no erosion of accuracy.

Get Started

The dryday™ long range weather forecast system is the culmination of over 50 years of privately funded meteorological research.

Unlike historical averages, dryday™ forecasts are created using a dynamic model of the atmosphere based on meteorological forces that have been proven, by extensive testing, to be acting upon our weather.

We forecast over 3.2 million locations with published verified historical accuracy of up to 87%.

dryday™ has served 60,000+ customers worldwide with over 65% making repeat purchases.

dryday™ gives you an edge

dryday™ forecasts have consistently outperformed randomly planning on your own.

In fact, over the last ten years, dryday™ forecasts have demonstrated a three to one advantage over random selection.
