Weather & Forage Production

      SFREC has nearly 40 years of rangeland forage production and environmental data. This information is widely used for assessing how current-year forage production compares to previous years and for forecasting potential trajectories of peak forage production for the current growing season.

The web application button below enables users to examine current and historical rangeland production data between 1979 and the current year. Simply choose the dataset you would like to look at, and then select the time period in which you are interested. 

The button below will link you to the PDF of the Current Rangeland Forage Production Chart. This chart shows the estimated herbaceous dry matter yield data from 1979-present.
