FHB risk website has new features

The Alberta FHB risk website has been updated. The site has a Fusarium Disease Severity Value gauge and 10-day running risk evaluation tool to help producers decide on fungicide applications. A number of weather features have recently been added.

They include weather station data; a prevailing wind map that can be updated hourly for a location near a farm; an almanac of growing season accumulated precipitation; data on corn heat units; monthly accumulated growing degree days; and frost-free days; weather radar; and weather alerts and fire weather index. There is also information on several pests.

The site can be found at Alberta Agriculture. It also has a link (on the left hand side) for getting the mobile app.
