Weather is a constant companion for a producer of horticultural products whether it be grapes, apples, potatoes, onions, sweet corn, Christmas trees or ornamentals. Getting a better understanding of weather conditions and how they affect the production of a crop is critical in the economic viability and sustainability of a farming operation.
