Chill hour tools for fruit producers

Do you have a need for chill hour measurements?  There are a couple of online sources that you can use to calculate chill hours for your location.  AgroClimate has a great graphic package that allows you to pick between two chill hour models.  You can find it at http://agroclimate.org/tools/Chill-Hours-Calculator/.

If you are in Georgia, the Georgia Automated Environmental Monitoring Network also has chill hour calculators for each of their stations which allow you to select a start and end date.  The current chill hours for all of their stations can be found at http://weather.uga.edu/aemn/cgi-bin/AEMN.pl?site=AAAA&report=ci.
