Weather Impact is partner in the G4AW project MyVAS4Agri (Myanmar Mobile Value Added Services for Agriculture). This project aims to reach 850.000 farming families in Myanmar with information and advisories for their daily farm management. Via a mobile application “Htwet Toe” (meaning higher yield), farmers receive information on current and projected weather conditions, alerts regarding weather events and disease risks, market prices of agricultural inputs and products, and access to trained staff to answer their questions. Weather Impact is involved in developing the weather-related agricultural advisories, seasonal outlooks and weather alerts. Furthermore, an indicator for the onset of the monsoon is developed, which will help farmers to determine their optimal planting date. The project period is from 2018 until 2021.
