Frost, Disease, and Spray risk tables – What are they and how do they work?

Getting Started

On the Ag Risk page you can view colour-coded frost, disease, and spray forecast tables. Here are some steps to get started viewing agriculture risk in your area:
  1. To get started, view the Ag Risk page. It is available under the “Table Forecasts” menu.
  2. In the options panel you can select a past date using the archives button to look at previous forecasts.
  3. Click the other tabs to view the disease and spray tables.
  4. You can use the star icon in the toolbar to favourite an agriculture risk table. Your favourite is the first page shown when the app first loads. 

Notes: Our spray, frost, and disease forecasts are based on weather data closest to you. The spray forecast categorizes risk based on government guidelines for spraying. The disease forecasts are based on scientifically-reviewed crop forecasting models.
