ARS Develops Freeze Date Tool for Localities

This is for beekeepers too!

ARS climatologists have developed a first-of-its-kind Freeze Date Tool. Operated by the Midwestern Regional Climate Center at Purdue University, the Freeze Date Tool is a publicly accessible zone map that pinpoints temperature changes for growers and planters at the county level. Previously, freeze zone temperature maps were only available state-wide. Learn more.
