This dataset was first added to MfE Data Service on 02 Oct 2015.

Growing degree days (GDD) is the measure of how much warmth is available for plant and insect growth during a growing season. GDD information helps horticulturists and farmers predict plant growth and stock development. The GDD value changes in response to climate variations, such as El NiƱo. Long-term changes in GDD are a measure of changing climate conditions.
