Exploring Soil Moisture, Weather & Forage Biomass Relationships

Image of a Soil Sample

Olds College is performing a historical data correlation analysis in partnership with Agriculture Financial Services Corporation (AFSC) to learn from existing data sources what variables matter most to forage growth. Researchers will analyze historical precipitation, soil moisture measurements, forage clip site yield records, and other relevant weather measurements. Together these data sets provide the opportunity for a correlation analysis and model development to determine if forage yield can be estimated and modelled using soil moisture and other available weather data.
