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. Recently, this information is being used as an early warning system for fusarium head blight infection potential and, other insect prediction models are being developed for major insect pests in the province. Other uses include diagnostics and pesticide spray timing, frost probabilities, growing degree days and cropping plan applications.

Timing is of the essence when it comes to grazing, from the beginning to the end of the season. Understanding how your grass grows and responds to grazing is crucial to ensure that you have enough grass to get you through the rest of the year. In this webinar, Karin Lindquist, Forage/Beef Specialist with the Ag-Info Centre, will share how to observe the plants in your pasture to determine when to start grazing and how long to allow plants to recover. She will also provide other tips and tricks and rules of thumb for optimal grazing management.
