During the growing season
FACTS provides weather, soil and crop information, from field scale to regional, to support decision making on the ground. This data offers agriculture industry professionals key information that cannot be easily measured in the field and that is not provided by other public resource they need to make an informed decision about their crops. Weather forecasts are updated daily, and soil and crop predictions once per week.
Before and after the growing season
Project investigators and Iowa State University researchers benchmark economic and environmental performance, as well as perform what-if scenario analyses to explain causes for events during the growing season and to design strategies for the future.
