Ultra-local & connected ag-weather stations

By Sencrop

Easy to install and connected to a user-friendly app that was conceived for farmers, Sencrop’s weather gauges, wind gauges and humidity sensors allow immediate and ultra-local weather data accessible for agricultural specialists, everywhere and on a 24/7 basis.

Only 4 years after its creation in 2016, Sencrop established a presence in the UK in Cambridgeshire. The network of accessible and collaborative connected ag-weather stations helps farmers to make better decisions on a day-to-day basis and to access personalised and ultra-local recommendations. The French company provides services to a rapidly growing network of more than 13,000 subscribers across Europe. Since it opened the UK division in 2018, Sencrop quickly gained the trust of traditional farms in East Anglia and Lincolnshire. More than 300 British farmers, including cereal growers, fruit growers and vineyards, are Sencrop subscribers already.

Ultra-local data, reliable and accessible to everyone. Easy to install and connected to a user-friendly app that was conceived for farmers, Sencrop’s weather gauges, wind gauges and humidity sensors allow immediate and ultra-local weather data accessible for agricultural specialists, everywhere and on a 24/7 basis. Users view data in real time, customise warnings in order to schedule an input at the best moment, thus saving extra treatment costs, and intervene in case of disease or frost. Users watch rainfall cumulatives to optimise treatment timing or to forecast phenological states thanks to degree-days and to cold hours aggregates. The weather data can be retrieved and exported in several formats for long-term storage. Real time data transmission relies on a low-power, long-range network (Sigfox) which enables long-life batteries (3-4 years), reduced maintenance and geo-localisation. The Sencrop ultra-local ag-weather measurement concept is one of the most efficient and accurate available in the precision farming market at an affordable price.

The french ag-tech start-up launched in 2016 by Michael Bruniaux and Martin Ducroquet in Lille became a leader in its industry within 3 years. It reaped a US$10million fund raising in Series A in 2019, built the biggest ag-weather network in Europe, and so far has expanded its team at the service of farmers from 2 to 60 people, now with facilities in several European countries.

Why is nutrient use efficiency important?

Making the most out of crop nutrition, and producing more food with less inputs, is the major challenge facing UK farmers over the next decade. Increasingly, farmers will need to focus on making the most efficient use of nutrients for both arable and grassland production. This means ensuring crops have an adequate supply of all the nutrients they need that are essential to optimise yields.

Capturing the value of natural capital

As a farm’s environmental credentials become as important as the food it produces, an independent tech new entrant is seeking a solution for farmers to quantify and demonstrate their efforts in promoting natural capital. Alice Dyer reports.
