Climate and Meteorology

Climate and agriculture go hand-in-hand.  Without favorable rainfall and temperatures, crops and animals will suffer.

Drought Information

As a part of our activities as agriculturists, monitoring the weather is important... looking at both what has already happened and what the forecast holds. Many of us record daily measurements of precipitation, temperatures, and other parameters of the weather environment.  Below are some links to observations made in Gallatin, Missouri.
