Tools Managing Climate Risk in Agriculture
Climate tools are based on weather stations and gridded weather data from different sources. They are designed to inform users on current climate conditions and the effects of annual cycles such as the El Niño Southern Oscillation on weather patterns in the Southeastern U.S.A.
Crop disease tools are developed primarily to provide information about risk of infection and need to apply pesticides or not based on environmental conditions. They help growers avoid unnecessary applications and reduce cost of production.
Crop Yield & Development
Crop yield tools are designed to help users investigate the effects of climate on crop yield and development. They are based both on historical yield records and crop model simulations.
Degree Days & Chill Hours
Degree days and chill hours calculators are designed to track degree days and chill hours accumulation based on different base temperatures and models.
Monitoring and forecasting of cooling and
