Educational program to assist Missouri farmers


JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. - As fall weather rolls in farmers in Missouri will have a helping hand to assist them in keeping updated on outside conditions.

Horizon Point is an educational program from the University of Missouri Commercial Agriculture program that's designed to deliver site specific weather updates and advisories through email to participating farmers.

Once subscribed, farmers have access to a wide array of information including temperatures, wind direction and speed, and rainfall runoff indicators.

Farmers also have the chance during the Fall to make use of the fall nitrogen application chart, a chart of soil temperature at six-inch depth which will help to determine at a glance the best time windows between top soil freezings.

The service is free, and interested users can learn more by signing up at
