Report on the 1997 Demonstration of the Northeast Weather Association and Blight Alert to Onion Growers
Mishanec, John; Ullrich, Maire; MacNeil, Carol; Le Maire, Roland
The Orange county IPM program has been running Blight alert demonstrations for over 5 years. As the system for disease forecasting developed from using hygrothermographs to automated weather stations, growers needed to be brought along with that development as well. In 1996, the North East Weather Association (NEWA) was set up to facilitate the transfer of weather related information to growers.
