New Version of Runoff Risk Advisory Forecast Available for Farmers


Wisconsin farmers have an improved way to help determine the threat of runoff before they plan to spread manure. The Department of Ag, Trade and Consumer Protection launched a new version of the Wisconsin Runoff Risk Advisory Forecast on Friday that gives farmers a localized look at the threat of runoff. The forecast looks at soil moisture, precipitation and temperature forecasts, snow cover and landscape characteristics to make its predictions and is updated twice a day by the National Weather Service. The new version allows farmers to zoom in from a statewide map to their local area. DATCP officials say the runoff risk forecast does not replace nutrient management planning or emergency planning in case of manure spills. Click Here to visit the website
