Episode 125 – 2023 Harvest Weather Outlook

The weather this past summer took the old adage “Don’t like the weather in Ohio, just wait” to a whole new level. The mild temperatures were certainly enjoyable but did not help progress crop development. We reflect on how the summer weather played out and take a look at what farmers can expect over the next few months as harvest begins.

Dr. Aaron Wilson joins us once again to provide his insight and expertise. To report weather in your area, visit: go.osu.edu/drought_cmor. Learn more at climate.osu.edu.

Episode 117 – Drought Begets Drought

We would rather not have this title for our summer weather outlook but, of all the advances we’ve made in agriculture, controlling the weather is not one of them. Dr. Aaron Wilson joins us to look at what happened this past spring as we moved away from a La Nina. He also provides an outlook for this summer’s growing conditions.

The state climate office would love to hear from folks on what impacts you are seeing. This will help them monitor these rapidly changing conditions. They highly encourage farmers to submit observations to the NOAA and National Drought Centers’ CMOR Tool: https://go.osu.edu/drought_cmor.

Episode 107 – 2022 Fall Weather Update

Hopefully harvest is well underway and crops are drying down but we know that is not the case everywhere. This fall has presented a unique situation with dry but cool weather.
