Automatic Agro-meteorological Station – Botswana

In 2011, SUTRON provided and installed an Agrometeorological Monitoring Station at the Botswana College of Agriculture in Gaborone, Botswana.

First Real-Time, On-Demand Automated Agromet Station in the Country

This station was one of the first automated agromet stations in the country.

The installed system was designed to provide researchers at the College of Agriculture accurate, real-time on-demand weather information which could be used for many agricultural applications, including crop yield and disease forecasting.

The system was configured to measure relevant parameters used in agricultural applications, including the calculation of evapotranspiration.

Data Transmission

Data is made available to the user via SUTRON’s Webhosting Website, SUTRONWIN. Here, the user is able to view data in table and graph format, and then can download data in excel form.

The user is also able to set up seasonal alarms for individual parameters. These alarms can be sent to the user via SMS or email.

Results and Benefits

By installing SUTRON’s AgroMet Station, the user was able to reliably collect very accurate agricultural weather data, where it is used in research programs.

By having the data posted on the SUTRON designed website, the user can easily and securely log onto the website to analyze the data.
