The AHDB WeatherHub, which aggregates and visualizes weather data, will
now make available ClearAg current and forecast weather information via
its website, as well as via bespoke applications using third-party data
dashboards.

"The AHDB WeatherHub brings together a range of open-source and procured
weather-related data," said Simon Oxley, head of Crop Production Systems
at the AHDB. "The purpose of this weather data is both to support crop
production decisions made by farmers and agronomists – for example via
crop disease alerts – as well as help explain observed crop growth and
disease characteristics, while putting this in a historic context by
comparing current to long-term weather data."

"We are excited to provide farmers and agronomists across the UK with
access to Iteris' ClearAg smart content via the AHDB's WeatherHub
platform," said Jim Chambers, senior vice president and general manager,
Agriculture and Weather Analytics at Iteris. "Making ClearAg's
hyperlocal atmospheric data available to AHDB members will help the UK
farming community make better decisions, while promoting the ClearAg
brand and expanding our presence in Europe."

The AHDB is a statutory levy board, funded by farmers, growers and
others in the supply chain. Its delivery of services to members is
focused on six sectors – beef and lamb, cereals and oilseeds, dairy,
horticulture, pork and potatoes – covering over 72% of total
agricultural output in the UK. Further information on AHDB can be found
