This April, the OpenWeather company presented a brand new product, Agro API, which was intended to change the working process of agricultural applications. Our algorithms for collecting and processing satellite scenes and weather data combined with the simplified delivery of prepared products to the end user make this product wholly unique and convenient.

This set of articles about the Agro API explains all the benefits of our service. The articles also show how and why you can use our instruments for your purposes and applications.

First of all, please read our documentation to give the full information on how to work with Agro API. To make it easy to work with our documentation, please read the step-by-step description:
