Clouds Over FieldManaging your crops isn’t always easy, but now there is a new application on Weather.com to help.

Weather.com now features customizable local weather applications, including an Agriculture Application where farmers can get their daily forecast with precipitation, and access soil moisture conditions, precipitation reports and forecasts, wind speed and direction, as well as other beneficial information, such as:

An Almanac. Shows a history of average highs/lows and historical records for temperature and precipitation levels in local areas.

A Growing Degree Days Calculator. Measures the rate at which crops grow during specific dates and temperatures throughout the year.

Seasonal Outlooks. Offers regional season precipitation and temperature levels around the U.S.

Agricultural News. Provides updates from across the nation.

Imagine my surprise when I clicked the link to Agriculture Application to find that it was sponsored by Monsanto. Granted it is a Weather Channel program, but I shudder to think that Monsanto is bringing me local agricultural weather information.
