NEWA—Network for Environment and Weather Applications

Growers in the Northeast can use this website to help make planting, pest management, and a range of other weather- and climate-based agricultural decisions.

This website retrieves data from on-farm, grower-owned weather stations throughout the Northeast and in a number of other locations across the U.S. These data are combined with data from existing observations and forecasts from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration to provide integrated pest management (IPM) and crop production model results and tabulated weather data summaries to growers. Currently, 30 IPM and crop production tools and 13 degree-day tools are freely available from the NEWA website.

Interactive forecast models automatically compute and display results to inform crop production and precision IPM practices. The NEWA website provides:

  • Hourly and daily weather summaries
  • Degree-day tables
  • Plant disease forecasts
  • Insect models
  • Crop production models
  • National Weather Service forecasts
