Probability of Effective growing season degree days above 100 for cool season crops, in 2 weeks
The probability of effective growing season degree days above 100 for cool season crops. This condition must be maintained for at least 5 consecutive days in order for EGDD to be accumulated (egdd_cool_100prob).
Week 1 and week 2 forecasted probability is available daily from April 1 to October 31.
Week 3 and week 4 forecasted probability is available weekly (Thursday) from April 1 to October 31.
Cumulative heat-energy satisfies the essential requirement of field crop growth and development towards a high yield and good quality of agricultural crop products.
Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada (AAFC) and Environment and Climate Change Canada (ECCC) have together developed a suite of extreme agrometeorological indices based on four main categories of weather factors: temperature, precipitation, heat, and wind. The extreme weather indices are intended as short-term prediction tools and generated using ECCC’s medium range forecasts to create a weekly index product on a daily and weekly basis.
