2018 marked the ﬁrst year of collaboration between the Network for Environment and Weather Applications (NEWA), which is part of the New York State IPM Program at Cornell University, and University at Albany’s New York State Mesonet (NYSM). In March, ten data streams (table 1, ﬁgure 1) were established to link NYSM-generated weather data to the NEWA online agricultural decision support system, available for use by agricultural stakeholders across New York State. 2018 was successful, as demonstrated by metrics provided in table 2. 2019 is sure to attract more users to these locations on NEWA as awareness grows of their availability.
The successful collaboration between NEWA and NYS Mesonet was also featured as a showcase in the New York State IPM Program 2017-18 Annual Report. The report can be downloaded from this Cornell eCommons permalink:
