The Delta Agricultural Weather Center is located at the Delta Research and Extension  Center (DREC) in Stoneville, MS. The center is a joint effort between the Mississippi  Agricultural and Forestry Experiment Station (MAFES) and the Mississippi State  University Extension Service (MSU-ES). The purpose of this center is to provide  historical and up-to-date weather data and products to aid farmers in making  agricultural decisions.

On the Current Ag Weather Conditions page, missing data or data that seems erroneous may be available at a later date. Please contact the office and the corrections or data may be available.

 About the Center...

 On March 31, 1996, the National Weather Service located at Stoneville, Mississippi,  closed its doors. Through volunteer efforts, weather data collection continued as it had  since 1915 so there would be no gap in historical data.

 It was soon apparent there was a need for public access to weather data, particularly  DD60's and DD50's. The Delta Research and Extension Center secured a Federal  Extension grant to fund a basic weather project. This grant allowed the Delta  Agricultural Weather Center to become fully operational in May 1998. The Center  began operation with three on-farm sites recording weather information daily. Other  sites were added and continue to be added throughout the entire Delta region.
