Monitor the Farm, Plan Ahead & Protect Crops with the KestrelMet 6000
Weather can make or break the success of your farm. Closely monitoring the weather can allow you to make decisions that prevent damage or loss, even when weather decides to turn at a moment's notice.
Craig Schneiderwind from Schneiderwind Farm & Nursery in Bucks County, PA relies on the KestrelMet 6000 to monitor the farm and protect his crops all year long. His experience with the KestrelMet 6000 shows its true value for farmers with nearly all crop types.
"Crop production will always be most impacted by the weather where it's being grown. This is why you'll benefit from having an on-farm weather station."

How the KestrelMet 6000 Helps with Crop & Farm Management
The KestrelMet 6000's accurate measurements can aid in decision making and successful farming:
- Wind speed and direction for spraying fertilizer

- Rainfall for monitoring crop growth and planning harvest days
KestrelMet 6000 allows you to take the guesswork out of the weather when it comes to protecting your crops. It allows you to pick the very best days for planning, planting, fertilizing, and much more.
With Kestrel at your side informing you about the weather, you can feel safe and confident with moving forward with your farming plans.
Easy Set Up for Busy Farmers
On a working farm, the days are long.
It's likely that you don't have the time nor desire to learn a very complicated at-home weather station. You especially don't want to deal with all the bells and whistles that come included that you'll never use.
"I don't want to spend a lot of time installing new equipment or trying to learn how to use a complicated weather station. The KestrelMet 6000 is fast and easy to install. It comes ready to go. It takes less than 20 minutes to get your station up and running. The KestrelMet is solar powered with a backup battery so you can count on long lasting power."
The KestrelMet 6000 is very intuitive when it comes to set up and installation. The entire process can be finished within 20 minutes! In addition to a fast and frustration-free installation, the KestrelMet has reliable cellular coverage for transmitting your weather data to view online. While many other weather stations require WiFi to operate, the KestrelMet is a cellular weather station making it ideal for use in remote or rural locations where WiFi reception can be a problem.
Instant Access to On-Site Weather
Think about how you track the weather for harvesting.
Do you watch the local weather at your favorite new station and then head out the door?
Do you take a quick glance at your weather app?
If this is the way that you read the weather, you're not alone. Even some of the most highly rated weather apps such as AccuWeather can't hold a candle to weather stations like the KestrelMet 6000.
That's because the local weather channel and weather apps call from nearby airports. This airport can be as much as 30 miles or more away. This can make a big difference when it comes to a storm cell coming through and other problematic weather on the horizon.
The KestrelMet 6000 is designed to display and predict the weather directly from your farm. This eliminates any potential microclimate variations that you might run into. You'll be able to see exactly what weather can negatively affect your crops.
Simply put, it is not enough to rely on weather apps or the local news station when you have thousands if not millions of dollars invested in your farm and crops.
With the ability to track actual conditions on your farm, you can prepare for excessive rainfall, prevent frost damage, high winds, or other changes in the weather.
KestrelMet 6000 for Your Farm
When you're serious about protecting your crops as well as your profits, the KestrelMet 6000 is the ideal device to have as an on-farm weather monitoring tool. Select this robust weather station to prevent avoidable damage to crops and maximize yield.
