We have kept the wind and rain gauges separate deliberately due to practical We deliberately kept the wind and rain gauges separate due to practical considerations. The optimal locations for the two instruments vary depending on the desired data.

To set up the Raincrop, you should find a location with minimal wind where you can position the station level.

For the Windcrop, you should seek out areas that reflect extreme wind speeds, such as hillsides and valleys, or are near sensitive zones like damp areas or water sources. This will allow you to estimate the risk of pesticide dispersal during spraying.

The purpose of separating the rain and wind gauges into two separate stations is to better meet the needs of farmers while allowing for flexibility in equipment placement.
