Plot Description:

This autoplot combines the USDA NASS county yield estimates with summarized weather variables from a single weather station. The county that the weather station resides in is used for the comparison.

If you select a statewide areal averaged weather station, you will get the statewide yield estimates and not an individual county. Unfortunately, there is nothing analogous for the climate/crop district weather values as those values are mostly missing within USDA NASS.

Based on a sampling of recent timings for this application, plot generation time has averaged 4 seconds. Hold on for the plot is generating now!
