Overview: 

Weather and climate patterns are a driving force behind the success or failure of Corn Belt cropping systems. Useful to Usable (U2U) was a multi-year, multi-university integrated research and extension project, funded by the USDA’s National Institute of Food and Agriculture. Its mission was to improve farm resilience and profitability in the North Central U.S. by transforming existing climate data into usable products for the agricultural community.

Purpose: 

The suite of decision-support tools was a product of this effort to help producers make better long-term decisions on what, when and where to plant, and how to manage crops for maximum yields and minimum environmental damage. The Midwestern Regional Climate Center (MRCC) was a partner in this effort and is proud to be a co-host of the project’s suite of decision-support tools.
