Free Climate.Com Service Up And Running

Climate Corporation offers field-level monitoring and forecasting, along with planting date advisor.

The Climate Corporation says it's free service is now live for the 2013 growing season, along with a new planting date advisor that quantifies spring and fall freeze risks.

Using remote sensing technologies, physical and geospatial mapping, weather simulations and proprietary agronomic models, provides growers with field-level monitoring and forecasting, field-specific crop insights and decision support tools.

Also, company officials say the new Planting Date Advisor can help growers better identify an ideal planting window and evaluate the potential risk-reward of their seed as it pertains to maturity dates.

Get real-time monitoring and decision making tools from Planting Date Advisor from Climate Corporation's new Web site.

Jeff Hamlin, director of agronomic research at Climate Corporation says "Planting Date Advisor is the first tool that can help growers make more profitable decisions in the face of increasingly extreme weather."

Powered by Climate Corporation's weather monitoring and modeling technology, Planting Date Advisor:

*Calculates risk that a corn or soybean crop in more than 20 million acres of U.S. fields could be damaged by a spring freeze post emergence or by a fall freeze before the crop has matured.

* Allows a grower to vary the relative maturity of the seed to assist cost-benefit analyses regarding the additional freeze risk one might assume by planting a longer-season, higher-yielding variety.

* Provides dynamic field-level planting date risk analyses using real-time weather forecasting technologies.
