Climate and Weather Tools for CCAs

Purdue University is home to both the Indiana State Climate Office and the Midwestern Regional Climate Center.  These are just two of several climate programs across the region and nation that focus on delivering climate information to a broad range of audiences to help improve decision making and climate monitoring.  This presentation will highlight several different tools and resources that may be helpful for the agricultural community to be aware of when making decisions throughout the year.
