dc.description.abstractNEWA delivered insect, disease, and crop management forecasts to 605 locations across 26 US states in 2017. NEWA database and tools were moved to new servers eliminating a high-usage crash problem. Automated station outage alerts and daily status reports were sent to NEWA state coordinators to improve data quality. Ohio and Michigan joined NEWA. An important data sharing agreement was reached with the NYS Mesonet. NEWA was promoted in 20 presentations and 24 publications. Total website usage increased 15.2%. Fruit and vegetable tool usage was higher in 2017. Seven grants supported NEWA and model development. A USDA-funded website redesign and data quality control project began. Graduate students from the Cornell School of Information Science completed a research project on grower website needs. A website content management system upgrade improved web security. Fire blight and apple scab models were improved. Model development continued for Cercospora leaf spot on table beet, ornamental insect pests, blueberry maggot, strawberry anthracnose, strawberry Botrytis, cranberry fruitworm, mummy berry, western bean cutworm, and weed emergence.
