Is the Grass Growing at Mountsorrel and Rothley?

Two of the main requirements for grass growth are temperature and moisture. By using these two parameters I have put together a simple algorithm that show when condition were good for grass growth. Moisture falls as rain or form as dew this is positive moisture return. Evapotranspiration is the sum of evaporation and plant transpiration and is deemed as water loss from the ground.
  • The night/day average temperature is greater than 6°c.
  • The balance of water remaining in the ground is greater than 3mm over a 5 day period.
