WEBINAR: Using the Alberta Climate Information Service
May 2, 2018 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
Alberta Agriculture and Forestry is hosting a free webinar on the many uses of the Alberta Climate Information Service (ACIS), on Wednesday, May 2, 2018 from 10 a.m. to 12 noon.
The webinar will go through some of the many uses of weather data collected by over 350 weather stations across Alberta for agricultural and other purposes. Recently, this information is being used as an early warning system for Fusarium head blight infection potential and other insect prediction models are being developed for major insect pests in the province. Other uses include diagnostics and pesticide spray timing, frost probabilities, growing degree days and cropping plan applications.
