New weather tool website for Quebec producers
March 28, 2016, Quebec – Agricultural farm productivity and environmental performance are closely linked to the decisions made from seeding to harvest. The AgWeather Quebec (AQ) website is a new agricultural management tool. Using the site’s weather and climate information (maps, graphs, models, agro-climate indices, real-time data, forecasts), which is adapted to their needs, producers can make informed decisions to improve their farm’s productivity and environmental footprint.
AQ is the result of a collaboration between Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada (AAFC), the Quebec Department of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food, Solutions Mesonet and Environment Canada. Since 2006, AAFC has been responsible for the development work necessary to create and implement a number of AQ management tools.
