This website combines US weather and climate data (32,000+ locations
) with numerous models to support a wide range of agricultural decision making needs. We currently serve over 130 degree-day (DD)
, DD maps, 24 hourly weather-driven models, 9 mobile-friendly pland disease infection risk models, and 5 synoptic plant disease alert maps for integrated pest management (IPM), invasive species, biological control, and other uses for the full USA. See a more complete project description here

We are actively collaborating and partnering with Fox Weather, LLC and the National Weather Service for forecasts, with the OSU PRISM Climate group for climate data, with the W. Region IPM Center, the USA National Phenology Network, and with numerous state and private IPM decision support programs and entities.
Funding has been provided by numerous USDA NIFA grants (including IPM, Biosecurity, and SARE), USDA PPQ, RMA and ipmPIPE grants, NPDN grants, WR-IPM Center and Oregon Statewide IPM funds, and local and regional commodity grants.
