A look at the sky - this is how many farmers begin their day. Because even in our times of modern weather forecasts, determining cloud formations is a helpful tool for predicting the weather, at least for the remainder of the day.
Which cloud makes which weather? Many farmers rely on modern meteorological weather forecasts. After all, lots of agricultural activities, such as sowing, harvesting or plant-health measures depend on the weather. In the past, weather forecasts were much less accurate. Cloud science, i.e. the identification of cloud formations and the associated weather trends, was therefore widespread. Rightly so, because astonishingly quite a lot can be “read” from the numerous types of cloud.
