Free whitepaper on accurately predicting corn production
The advent of new seed strains and fertilization techniques have dampened production volatility somewhat, but accurate forecasts of exogenous variables such as precipitation, soil moisture, and heat accumulation continue to be no less important than they were in the 20th century. Growing Degree Days (GDD) - a commonly used metric that distills much of this information into a discrete observation - is useful but has certain limitations when used in isolation. Learn how Growing Degree Days are used to make predictions for crop development rates and what technology is available to fill the gaps in GDD production forecasts.
