Weather Trends

Farmers today understand the impact extreme heat and cold temperatures can have on yield and profitability. With Farmer Starter, you can access temperature, precipitation and growing-degree-day trends based on a pre-set location. This gives you a sample of Ag Premium Weather as the paid version allows you to see this information for each field, along with contoured maps and email alerts.
