Grass-Cast Tutorial Webinar

The Grassland Productivity Forecast, or Grass-Cast, is an experimental model that generates map-based forecasts of grassland productivity, offering a potential new tool in the land manager’s drought contingency planning toolbox for grazing lands. The tool is available in the Great Plains and has recently expanded to the Southwest. In this webinar, Melannie Hartman, Senior Research Associate with Colorado State University and the Grass-Cast Production Team, presented on Grass-Cast and the three-stage process of developing and updating the model each growing season.
