It all began in 2014, when Jérôme Le Roy, a farmer’s grandson, noticed something: our ancestors’ sayings no longer predict the seasons. Climate change is highly topical and impacts every crop…
Discover Weenat’s story and how it’s involved in the world of agriculture.
It’s a fact: in farming, weather is everywhere.
Whether you’re trying to find the right intervention window for sowing, plan your treatments at the right time or know when to start irrigation… The weather is the rhythm of your seasons, and impacts all your decisions.
It’s the cornerstone of farming.
Farming today has to face more violent and more frequent climate hazards. Like the historic drought of 2020. Or the catastrophic frosts of April 2021.
And if that wasn’t enough, consumers are raising their requirements for food provenance and quality. And farmers, caught between a rock and a hard place, are seeing new regulatory constraints being added to an already long list.
So in 2014 when Jérôme Le Roy, a farmer’s grandson, created Weenat, he had one clear idea in mind:
Helping professionals in the sector by making them able to use their phone for direct access to reliable information on soil, plants, and the weather.
Since then, the idea has grown.
Over 18,000 farmers use Weenat solutions to manage their activities every day.
And together, we’re paving the way towards precision agriculture: more sustainable, better performing and civic-minded.
Helping you make the best decisions for your crops.
We support you every day with reliable information about the weather on your plots.
Because we’re convinced that if you know what’s happening in your fields, you can…
- Save time
- Avoid unnecessary trips
- Reduce inputs
- Predict climate hazards
- And improve end-of-season yields
Any way to help you stay one step ahead of the weather is good. So we developed 3 technologies that make life easier for thousands of farmers:
To measure what’s happening on your plots in real time
A km²-precise spatialized weather solution
To help you make the right decisions
And it’s all together in one place. That way, you have all the information in a single app. And you can take your weather everywhere with you.
MADE IN FRANCE
When you buy from Weenat, you get more than just a sensor.
All Weenat sensors are made in LA (Loire Atlantique in west France, that is) with ❤️. Assembly takes place at adapted businesses, employing over 80% workers with disabilities.
Since 2014, our teams have soldered, cut, assembled, coded and innovated to create THE sensor that will support you every day on the ground. And for that, we do everything we can to make our sensors sturdy and easy to maintain.
MAINTAINABLE AND SUSTAINABLE
That means that in case of a breakdown, you can order replacement parts, then carry out repairs in a few minutes. Without needing an engineer. That changes everything.
Because instead of buying a disposable sensor that will last a few years at best, you’re investing in robust equipment. Which will last you for life.
If we’re going to measure the weather on your plots, we should do it right.
Otherwise you could just go to any weather site to get an idea of how much it rained.
The problem is that in farming, “an idea” isn’t enough.
Because decisions based on “an idea” mean lower end-of-season yields.
So we do our utmost to create precision connected weather and agronomic solutions that can tell you EXACTLY what’s happening in your fields.
And we gathered a team of experts from all over to do it!
