What are the three types of weather data used in the Granular Crop Model?
- Corteva Connection Establish (If wanting to push/pull zones)
- Roles and Permissions set
- Invoice Granular Agronomy through Connex
- Fields are in Insights
- Crops Assigned in Activities
- Decision Zones Created or Synced from Corteva
- Field Details Set
- Add New Nitrogen or Planting Events
The three types of weather data used in the the Granular Crop Model are the current crop year's actual measurements*, the 8-day forecast, and historical data.
Consider the following example: The date is 3/1/18. The following weather is used when a nitrogen recommendation and simulation are run:
- Current crop year’s actuals: 10/1/17 - 2/28/18. Represented on the Season Chart before today's date line representing the estimated current soil nitrogen levels.
- The 8-day forecast: 3/1/18 - 3/8/18.
- Historical data: 3/9 - 9/30. Represented on the Season Chart as the blue cone shading to show the estimated, simulated, available nitrogen based on decision zone information and local historic weather patterns.
*Snow is measured in liquid equivalents. Data from the Corteva Weather Pillar grid for current growing season readings is updated nightly.
