Hail Events provide post event notifications of hail that has fallen within a field that has been added to your Morning Farm Report account. Hail Events are triggered at the field-specific level, and provide the probability of the hail event, the size of the hail stones, the density pattern of the hail, the duration of the hail event, and what the current crop growth stage is for the crop. Hail Alerts offer you an efficient hail reporting tool and presents an event’s significance by combining both crop growth and severity of the hail at the same time. To check active Hail Events, visit Checking Active Alerts.
For Hail Events to accurately provide the crop growth stage within the hail alert, make sure that you have updated the default planting date and crop type for the field (Figure 1). Updates can be made directly on the Hail Events page or in Field Story.
