At this half-day workshop, learn the ins-and-outs of the NEWA system (Network for Environment and Weather Applications). NEWA is an online system that provides hourly and daily weather data, pest forecasting models, and crop production models, to help implement IPM practices on farms across the Northeast. You will learn how to efficiently navigate the NEWA interface, including how to get weather data, access station specific pages, and effectively utilize models for insects, diseases, crop thinning (carbohydrate model), and frost risk.
