Michigan agriculture group launches mapping tool


LANSING, Mich. (AP) — Michigan has launched a mapping tool designed to help the state's agribusinesses improve their operations.

The Michigan Agri-Business Association says the tool gives businesses access to information that will guide their decisions, allow them to seize opportunities for economic growth and respond to new markets, climate change and other factors.

The interactive, web-based tool allows users to overlay a combination of historical and real-time data sets, including frost-free days, location of high-capacity wells, soil types, wind speed, topography and infrastructure.
