Quebec Agroclimate - Average end date of the growing season Average end date of the growing season (Tavg ≥ 5.5 °C) based on the period between 1979 and 2008. This analysis was based on temperature values interpolated at 10 km using the ANUSPLIN method, based on data from the Ministère du Développement durable, de l’Environnement et des Parcs du Québec and from Environment Canada. The length of the growing season is associated with the period when the weather conditions of a region allow for the growth of a crop. For a given region, it corresponds to the period when the average temperature stays above 5.5 °C. Given that this indicator is directly linked to crop growth and development, it is a particularly important tool in planning and managing long-term agricultural production and when making strategic decisions, such as evaluating a region’s agricultural potential. 2015-02-12 2018-08-16 Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada agri-geomatics-agrog@agr.gc.ca Nature and EnvironmentScience and TechnologyFarmlandsCropsAgricultureTemperaturePrecipitation Pre-packaged FGDB files (Bilingual)FGDB/GDB http://www.agr.gc.ca/atlas/data_donnees/cli/quebecAgroclimaticAtlasData/fgdb/CLI_SC_MOY_FIN_79_08_GDB.zip Pre-packaged GML files (Bilingual)GML http://www.agr.gc.ca/atlas/data_donnees/cli/quebecAgroclimaticAtlasData/gml/CLI_SC_MOY_FIN_79_08_GML.zip Pre-packaged GeoTIF files (Bilingual)GeoTIF http://www.agr.gc.ca/atlas/data_donnees/cli/quebecAgroclimaticAtlasData/tif/CLI_SC_MOY_FIN_79_08_TIF.zip ISO 19131: Data Product Specification (English)PDF http://www.agr.gc.ca/atlas/supportdocument_documentdesupport/quebecAgroclimaticAtlasData/en/ISO_19131_Quebec_Agroclimatic_Atlas_-_Data_Product_Specifications.pdf ISO 19131: Data Product Specification (French)PDF http://www.agr.gc.ca/atlas/supportdocument_documentdesupport/quebecAgroclimaticAtlasData/fr/Atlas_agroclimtique_du_QuEbec_-_SPC.pdf
