What we do – graphic illustration

By co-creating high quality weather and climate services, we support the agricultural value chain and help farmers adapt to a changing climate. We partner with various private and public organizations to reach farmers in the last mile with reliable weather and climate information. Working with and for farmers is key; by receiving valuable feedback and information from a farmer, we can develop our services further. Over 500.000 farmers receive our services through their mobile phone. We strive to build their capacity and support decision making in their farming activities, which results in improved yield.
