Three local Agri-businesses team up to create a uniquely local southern Ontario-based weather network to provide better field specific recommendations
AGRIS Co-operative Ltd., Wanstead Farmers Co-operative Co. Ltd. and Haggerty Creek Ltd. have initiated the AGGrower Daily Dashboard project to address the need for better and more accurate weather information that will enable growers to enhance their ability to identify, respond quickly and efficiently to climactic events, and ultimately better adapt to and manage day-to-day risk.
“This new tool, part of our Advanced Information Systems suite of programs, provides the growing conditions information needed to fine-tune operational and input decision-making ‘by crop, and by individual field’ using the 4R’s throughout the planting, growing and harvesting season”, explains project lead Dale Cowan, senior agronomist for the three participating firms.
Dry conditions will dominate the primary U.S. and Canadian Prairies crop regions Thursday. This trend will be favorable for harvest progress along with field drying in areas where heavy rain occurred over the past two days. Meanwhile, dryness will combine with unseasonably warm temperatures to deplete soil moisture in the southwestern Plains winter wheat areas. » More DTN Weather Commentary
