The weather prediction model ECMWF 9km on Windy.com
Numerical weather prediction models combined with measurements and satellite data allow to forecast local weather globally for a number of days in advance. The animation of the global weather prediction model of the ECMWF with a high horizontal spatial resolution of 9km that is shown here, is provided by Windy.com.
Modern weather forecast models hence provide with necessary data for the prediction of plant development (biomass, leaf area, …) and thus for the creation of TF Yield Forecast maps.
