IPM Pest and Plant Disease Models and Forecasting

  For Pest Modeling in the US for Agricultural, Pest Management, and Plant Biosecurity Decision Support in the US
This website brings together US weather data and plant pest and disease models to serve many decision support needs in agriculture. Currently this site provides over 73 degree-day and 18 hourly weather-driven models serving many IPM, regulatory, and plant biosecurity uses for the full USA, and specializes in IPM needs for the Pacific Northwest.

Weather data and forecasts are currently linked to the models for over 15,000+ US and nearby weather locations. Forecast sources include NWS Digital forecasts in all states, Fox Weather LLC forecasts in OR, WA, ID, W. MT, and CA, and NWS Zone forecasts for all US regions (max-min forecasts).

Funding has been provided by numerous USDA NIFA grants, USDA RMA ipmPIPE grants, NPDN grants, WR-IPM Center and Oregon Statewide IPM funds, and local and regional commodity grants.
