A modeling framework for evaluating the impact of weather conditions on farming and harvest operations applies real-time, field-level weather data and forecasts of meteorological and climatological conditions together with user-provided and/or observed feedback of a present state of a harvest-related condition to agronomic models and to generate a plurality of harvest advisory outputs for precision agriculture. A harvest advisory model simulates and predicts the impacts of this weather information and user-provided and/or observed feedback in one or more physical, empirical, or artificial intelligence models of precision agriculture to analyze crops, plants, soils, and resulting agricultural commodities, and provides harvest advisory outputs to a diagnostic support tool for users to enhance farming and harvest decision-making, whether by providing pre-, post-, or in situ-harvest operations and crop analyses.


An irrigation modeling framework in precision agriculture utilizes a combination of weather data, crop data, and other agricultural inputs to create customized agronomic models for diagnosing and predicting a moisture state in a field, and a corresponding need for, and timing of, irrigation activities. Specific combinations of various agricultural inputs can be applied, together with weather information to identify or adjust water-related characteristics of crops and soils, to model optimal irrigation activities and provide advisories, recommendations, and scheduling guidance for targeted application of artificial precipitation to address specific moisture conditions in a soil system of a field.

A visualization of pavement conditions that are evaluated with respect to weather, pavement, and sub-surface variables provides users responsible for roadway infrastructure maintenance and monitoring with information such as depths of accumulated precipitation across slices of a roadway for each particular time in a given time period. The accumulated precipitation information contains the depths for each of several different types of precipitation and is shown in three dimensions, where x represents the lane of the roadway, y represents the depths of precipitation, and z represents time. A visualization model generates an appearance of a roadway lane upon which the accumulated precipitation increases or decreases over time corresponding to the results of weather and maintenance acting on that lane.


A framework for diagnosing and predicting a suitability of soil conditions to various agricultural operations is performed in a combined, multi-part approach for simulating relationships between predictive data and observable outcomes. The framework includes analyzing one or more factors relevant to field trafficability, workability, and suitability for agricultural operations due to the effects of freezing and thawing cycles, and developing artificial intelligence systems to learn relationships between datasets to produce improved indications of trafficability, workability, and forecasts of suitability windows for a particular user, user community, farm, farm group, field, or equipment. The framework also includes a real-time feedback mechanism by which a user can validate or correct these indications and forecasts. The framework may further be configured to override one or more of the soil state assessments to ensure that indicators and forecasts are consistent with the recently-provided feedback.

A framework for combining a weather risk analysis with appropriate operational rules includes a data initialization component, a rules processing component, and one or more weather risk analysis and assessment tools to evaluate a flight condition. The framework applies current, historical, predicted and forecasted weather data to the one or more operational rules governing a mission, a payload, a flight plan, a craft type, and a location of the mission for aircraft such as an unmanned aerial vehicle or remotely-piloted vehicle, and generates advisories based on the evaluation of flight conditions such as a mission compliance status, instructions for operation of unmanned aircraft, and management advisories. The flight condition advisories include either a fly advisory or a no-fly advisory, and the framework may also provide a mission prioritization and optimization system.

A modeling framework for estimating crop growth and development over the course of an entire growing season generates a continuing profile of crop development from any point prior to and during a growing season until a crop maturity date is reached. The modeling framework applies extended range weather forecasts and remotely-sensed imagery to improve crop growth and development estimation, validation and projection. Output from the profile of crop development profile generates a combination of data for use in auxiliary farm management applications.
