Workshops, weather, and what’s coming up with Eric Snodgrass.

Given Eric Snodgrass’ extensive experience as a global weather expert, he was a perfect fit to speak at the recent InfoAg conference. As Principal Atmospheric Scientist at Agrible, Eric provides weather forecast solutions for global agriculture, which give ag users insights to make operational decisions weeks in advance. Eric held a workshop called, “Weather Data & Tools, Growing Season Weather Risks in Agriculture.” We wanted to hear more about this workshop and sat down with Eric to hear his thoughts.
