Weather Impact

Weather Impact provides agribusinesses with easy to access, reliable weather and climate information. Our mission is to support farmers to optimize global food production and reduce the impact of climate change.

With our state-of-the-art weather models, our clients call on us for long term weather and climate-risk analyses. With this data, they support farmers in making decisions on when to plant or when to harvest. Our services are flexible, tailor-made to the context, and available in various languages across Africa. We condense complex, real-time data into accurate, user-friendly texts, or a mobile app. In 2020, with the help of our clients - digital platforms and other institutions that support farmers - over 190,000 farmers in East Africa receive weather forecasts directly on their mobile phones. User evaluation studies with farmers show that Weather Impact services score very high on quality and reliability.

Weather Impact provides long - and short-term analyses of weather and climatology, which are also often used as input for other services, such as crop yield forecasts, pest and disease forecasts and seasonal anomaly analyses. Our experts combine the output of high-quality weather models, satellites and ground observations to create reliable forecasts and analyses.

Weather Impact's data and information services are all accessible through APIs (application programming interfaces) to partners and third parties. Weather Impact teams up with consultants, multinationals, ICT companies, NGOs, research institutes and universities in both its commercial and research work.

What is an API?
An API (Application Programming Interface) is a way of communicating between computer programmes. By using a very simple piece of computer code, it is possible to make requests to our API. These requests return the services of Weather Impact automatically. Whether you are looking to obtain weather data, or you want to plug your own application onto our meteorological database, or you want to receive complete weather services, the Weather Impact API is an easy way of obtaining all the weather information you need.

Our API
The Weather Impact API is a RESTful API and can be accessed easily using an API Client (e.g. Insomnia, Postman) or using an operational script in a scripting language (e.g. Python). We provide various endpoints for different user types. We offer weather information on grid basis using the Weather Impact Web Services. To obtain information for a single location, you can connect to our Mobile API.

Weather4Farmers App

About

The digitization of the agricultural sector is developing rapidly. More and more farmers have access to a smartphone and internet coverage is becoming available even at remote places.

Weather Impact currently provides 130,000 Kenyan farmers with local weather forecasts through mobile text messages. Now we aim to make these easily available for all farmers in Africa via the Weather4Farmers smartphone application.

Our app

We now have the technology ready to offer farmers a mobile app with high quality weather data. Weather Impact has developed a prototype app and aims to develop this mobile application further to support small-scale African farmers with localized farm-weather information.

The Weather4Farmers app is easy-to-use and provides high-quality information which is critical for farm management. This includes;

  • Innovative forecasts on the start of the rain season
  • Upcoming seasonal anomalies
  • Agricultural advisories
  • Detailed weather forecast for the coming 10 days

With specific agro-weather information Weather4Farmers supports farmers with farm management. Based on high-quality, localized weather information they can determine the best time to plant or harvest, to use fertilizers and pesticides, to choose the best crops and make investment decisions. This results in higher productivity and more efficient use of inputs.
