FarmSense currently provides three APIs for DIY Farmers.
The Day Length resource takes a location, specified by a latitude and longitude, and a date or array of dates, and returns a JSON string of Solar data for each date.
The Day Length resource is particularly useful for daylight- or time-keyed applications like artificial lighting, enclosure automation or feeding systems.
The Frost Date resource is currently based on the NOAA Frost Date data set and is presented as a collection of two resources: stations, and probabilities.
Stations are the weather stations where the data was captured.
Probabilities are the likelihood particular frost thresholds will be exceeded on particular dates. Typically, you’ll find your nearest station based on latitude & longitude, then get the probabilities for that station.
The Frost Date resource is particularly useful for planning systems like planting & harvesting schedules.
The Moon Phase resource takes a date or array of dates, and returns a JSON string of Moon Phase data for each date.
The Moon Phase resource is particularly useful for planting & harvesting systems, especially Synodic, Biodynamic or Sidereal Cycle-based systems.
