dc.description.abstractAn agroclimatic risk assessment for agricultural production across the Canadian prairie provinces has been assembled to address challenges related to frost, heat units, and moisture. Based on 30 years of daily climate data from 1971 though 2000 from 230 climate stations, the assessment provides a series of risk maps depicting the likelihood to achieve certain thresholds of frost dates or durations, heat unit accumulations, growing season rainfall, crop water demand (CWD), and crop water deficits. Maps for each parameter provide a spatial representation of 50%, 25%, and 10% risks and the coefficient of variation.en
