Real Time Weather Data
Real-time weather data make
crop management decisions easier
A need for accurate, current weather data was the reason behind the development of a new weather system that gives farmers access to real-time information. The AGGrower Daily Dashboard is powered by a network of 80 weather stations in southwestern Ontario that capture rain fall, relative humidity, and wind speed and direction data minute by minute and push it to a farmer-accessible website every 15 minutes.

Field Crop Report

2017 Grain Corn Ear Mould and Vomitoxin (DON) Survey
 
OMAFRA field crop staff with the assistance from members of the Ontario Agri-Business Association (OABA) have completed the annual Provincial corn ear mould and mycotoxin survey. These mycotoxins, particularly vomitoxin (DON) produced primarily by Gibberella/Fusarium ear moulds can be disruptive when fed to livestock, especially hogs. The purpose of the annual survey is to assess grower and industry risk. Eighty-six percent of the samples tested low (<2.00 ppm) which bodes well for the 2017 Ontario corn crop.
