We encourage you to use the interactive web application to check out the data. Let us know where we got it right and where we got it wrong! We're hoping to introduce a pilot project in the near future that uses crowd-sourced information (tweets or emails from farmers themselves) to help create and validate these maps. More details to come.

We also provide near-real-time maps during the growing season of surface soil moisture and ag-land condition. Follow @AndrewMDavidson and @LeanderCampbell to stay up to date.
