Update of Agricultural Zones - Knowledgebase Question

Buffalo, NY
Question by dczarnec

Are the standard agricultural zones ever updated to reflect changing climate? Our weather patterns in western NY state have beome milder over the years. Depending on which map you use, I'm listed in the zone of avg min. temp of -10 to -20 degrees. It has not been below zero in many years here. Seems like I could safely bump up a zone.

Although it's not on line yet, Susan Chamberlin's article "Hard Rain Falling" from the December 1998 issue, should be up soon. Hope this helps!
