In an effort to make weather data, growing degree days (GDD) and pest forecasting information more up-to-date and accessible we are launching a Weather Dashboard.
This Weather Dashboard will provide weather and pest information for each of the regions currently covered in the Vegetable Crop Report plus a few more newly added.
Each region will have a visual display of GDD and precipitation vs. the 10-year average. There are also region-specific pest thresholds that visually display when pests have reached a given threshold.
Growers are invited to check out the new tool and explore the data for a station nearest you. Historical weather data is currently available up to 2017 while previous year’s data will continue to be added.
As always, feedback would be greatly appreciated!
