STEP Systems GmbH, as supplier of agricultural meteorological equipment, within the framework of the joint project of Chamber of Commerce and Industry and UNDP “Business Forum of Uzbekistan (Phase III)” has installed meteorological stations in the Tashkent region, Uzbekistan.
Marjan Karlovic, technical advisor of STEP Systems, visited Uzbekistan to conduct on-site installation of the T-WARNER 300 weather stations and training on operating and maintenance of weather stations, weather and crop disease forecasting models in target districts of Tashkent region, Uzbekistan.
These stations are equipped with several sensors to measure the amount of precipitation, air and soil temperature, humidity of air soil and leaf, wind speed and direction. Based on the collected data, the special software calculates the risk of breaking out of diseases and pests, and the date of preventive treatment by means of protection, as well as the time and intensity of irrigation.
