Agriculture Forecasting Services

The soil maps indicate the soil moisture and soil temperature down to the local environments. The conditions are modeled and are derived from detailed analyses of precipitation derived from radar imagery and actual observations reported by several agencies. Crop growth takes into account the precipitation, temperature, and radiation amounts and simulates the growth of the plant for each local area. Finally, since hail has such a devastating effect on crops, Meridian plots the potential hail swaths derived from high resolution radar imagery.

To learn more about Meridian's agricultural offerings, contact us by phone or email and we'll be glad to address your needs. If you need specific information for hail or other weather-related agricultural events, learn more about our Event Specific Weather Evaluation or Expert Witness services.
