A Look Back a the 2019 Growing Season from a Climatologist’s Perspective

December 17, 2019

2019 Indiana CCA Conference

The Indiana State Climate Office presented “A Look Back a the 2019 Growing Season from a Climatologist’s Perspective” at the 2019 Indiana Certified Crop Advisor’s annual conference.  Reviewing in two-month periods (April-May [Spring], June-July [Summer], August-September [Late Summer], and October-November [Late Harvest]), Dr. Beth Hall, Indiana State Climatologist, reviewed the conditions from a climatological perspective.  Highlights included a wetter-than-normal spring, a rather typical accumulation of growing degree-days after the wet spring, an unusually dry August and September, and the timing of the first hard freeze late enough in the season to help with harvest.
