A global understanding of the impact of climate change and extreme weather is critical when dealing with dynamic supply chains. Gro Intelligence provides the data and solutions that enable customers to form the most detailed picture of weather conditions and to mitigate weather-related risk.

Using the Growing Conditions app, we will show you how to map growing conditions and how they relate to past growing seasons and crop yields.
