Degree Days

  • A degree day is not a day at all, but a measurement of heating or cooling.
  • Degree days can be used as a tool to plan timing for planting crops and to help with pest control management.
  • There are three different types of degree days:
    1. Cooling Degree Day (CDD)
    2. Heating Degree Day (HDD)
    3. Growing Degree Day (GDD)
