U2U Decision Support Tools - AgClimate View

Welcome to AgClimate View – your source for historical climate and crop yield data in the Corn Belt.

  • Plot local monthly temperature and precipitation variation back to 1980
  • Track county crop yields and trends (where data is available)
  • Consider crop yields in the context of monthly temperature, precipitation and growing degree day (GDD50) data

Used in tandem with other decision resources, this product can help you find long-term correlations between climate trends and yields and help put your recent growing cycles into historical context.

Climate products and tools are developed by the HPRCC and its partner Regional Climate Centers to provide users with a means to routinely access recent weather and climate data.
