“How much rain did you get?” is a very popular opening to a conversation between farmers.

AGGrower Daily Dashboard
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.
