    but good forecasting helps farmers know when to till, to plant, when to apply pesticides (for max impact with minimum quantities) and when to harvest.  The information is as important to the small scale sustainable and organic farmers as well as to the mega farms.  Also needed for the best animal husbandry.

    Privatizing the NWS is bullsh-t.
