Weather plays an important role in agriculture and our lives. This webinar will go through some of the many uses of weather data collected by over 350 weather stations across Alberta for agricultural and other purposes.

Other uses include diagnostics and pesticide spray timing, frost probabilities, growing degree days and cropping plan applications.
