The Growing Degree Days application measures the maturity of your crop by viewing current and past growing degree days data for your farm’s location. Growing degree days (GDD) are a measure of heat accumulation used in agriculture to predict the date that crops will reach maturity.
Touch the map pin to display growing degree days for your current location. Move the map pin to see growing degree days for a different location. Growing degree days are listed by month and summarized for the year. The current year’s growing degree days are compared to the previous year’s growing degree days.
