Heat Wave Days are the number of days in the forecast period with a maximum temperature above the cardinal maximum temperature, the temperature at which crop growth ceases. This temperature is 35°C for warm season crops (dhw_warm).Week 1 and week 2 forecasted index is available daily from April 1 to October 31.Week 3 and week 4 forecasted index is available weekly (Thursday) from April 1 to October 31.Warm season crops require a relatively warm temperature condition. Typical examples include bean, soybean, corn and sweet potato. They normally grow during the summer season and early fall, then ripen in late fall in southern Canada only.

An accumulated value of heat degrees that the average temperature is above a specified threshold, 10°C for warm season crops. This condition must be maintained for at least 5 consecutive days in order for EGDD to be accumulated (egdd_warm). Week 1 and week 2 forecasted index is available daily from April 1 to October 31. Week 3 and week 4 forecasted index is available weekly (Thursday) from April 1 to October 31.

Precipitation (moisture availability) establishes the economic yield potential and product quality of field crops. Both dry and wet precipitation extremes have the ability to inhibit proper crop growth. The maximum daily precipitation index covers the risk of excessive precipitation in the short term, while the other indices pertain to longer term moisture availability.Agriculture is an important primary production sector in Canada. Agricultural production, profitability, sustainability and food security depend on many agrometeorological factors.

The probability of effective growing season degree days above 175 for cool season crops. This condition must be maintained for at least 5 consecutive days in order for EGDD to be accumulated (egddcool175prob).Week 1 and week 2 forecasted probability is available daily from April 1 to October 31.Week 3 and week 4 forecasted probability is available weekly (Thursday) from April 1 to October 31.Cumulative heat-energy satisfies the essential requirement of field crop growth and development towards a high yield and good quality of agricultural crop products.Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada (AAFC) and Environment and Climate Change Canada (ECCC) have together developed a suite of extreme agrometeorological indices based on four main categories of weather factors: temperature, precipitation, heat, and wind. The extreme weather indices are intended as short-term prediction tools and generated using ECCC’s medium range forecasts to create a weekly index product on a daily and weekly basis.

Probability of 10-day precipitation total above 10mm (p10d_prob10).Week 1 and week 2 forecasted probability is available daily from September 1 to August 31.Week 3 and week 4 forecasted probability is available weekly (Thursday) from September 1 to August 31.Precipitation (moisture availability) establishes the economic yield potential and product quality of field crops. Both dry and wet precipitation extremes have the ability to inhibit proper crop growth.

The probability (likelihood) of ice freeze days for herbaceous crops during in a dormant period (ifdherbdorm_prob). The number of days in the forecast period with a minimum temperature below the frost temperature. It is -15°C for herbaceous crops over the dormant period. Week 1 and week 2 forecasted probability is available daily from November 1 to March 31.Week 3 and week 4 forecasted probability is available weekly (Thursday) from November 1 to March 31.Over-wintering crops are biennial and perennial field crops such as herbaceous plants (strawberry, alfalfa, timothy, and many other forage crops) and woody fruit trees (apple, pear, peach, cherry, plum, apricot, chestnut, pecan, grape, etc.).

Heat Wave Days are the number of days in the forecast period with a maximum temperature above the cardinal maximum temperature, the temperature at which crop growth ceases (dhw_cool). This temperature is 30°C for cool season crops.Week 1 and week 2 forecasted index is available daily from April 1 to October 31.Week 3 and week 4 forecasted index is available weekly (Thursday) from April 1 to October 31.Cool season crops require a relatively low temperature condition. Typical examples include wheat, barley, canola, oat, rye, pea, and potato. They normally grow in late spring and summer, and mature between the end of summer and early fall in the southern agricultural areas of Canada.
