Climate Indicators


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.


Rainfall and Temp. Monitoring

Observed rainfall and temperature

Growing Degree Days Monitoring

Monitoring maps of growing degree days

Growing Degree Days Calculator

Monitoring and forecasting of growing
degree days for selected crops

Heat Stress Monitoring

Accumulated daily maximum temperature
above the thresholds of 82ºF, 86ºF, 90ºF, 93ºF or 97ºF.

ARID (Spatial)

Agricultural Reference Index for Drought

ARID (Stations)

Agricultural Reference Index for Drought

Chill Hours Calculator

Monitoring and forecasting of chill hours

Freeze Risk Probabilities

Freeze probabilities based on El Niño Southern
Oscillation (ENSO) phases

Cooling and Heating Degree
Days Calculator

Monitoring and forecasting of cooling and
heating degree days

Pests and Diseases


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.

County Yield Statistics

Crop yield series, trends and residuals at the county level

Crop Season Planning

Plan your crop season based on phenological stages
date ranges with extreme weather events probabilities

Planting Date Planner

Probability of low, medium, and high yields based
on planting dates

Phenology and Weather Tracker

Tracking phenology and weather

Footprint Calculators


Footprint calculators are designed to help the agricultural industry evaluate the sustainability of crop production systems in the Southeastern U.S.A.

Carbon Footprint Calculator

Emission of greenhouse gases to produce,
store, and transport strawberry.
