Introducing: New VCR Weather and Pest Dashboard

In an effort to make weather data, growing degree days (GDD) and pest forecasting information more up-to-date and accessible we are launching a Weather Dashboard.

This Weather Dashboard will provide weather and pest information for each of the regions currently covered in the Vegetable Crop Report plus a few more newly added.

Each region will have a visual display of GDD and precipitation vs. the 10-year average. There are also region-specific pest thresholds that visually display when pests have reached a given threshold.

Growers are invited to check out the new tool and explore the data for a station nearest you. Historical weather data is currently available up to 2017 while previous year’s data will continue to be added.

As always, feedback would be greatly appreciated!

      Not yet, but it’s coming. We’re hoping to add some more Northern Ontario sites in the next expansion.
