NEWA in Connecticut – meet your state coordinator

Mary Concklin
NEWA CT Coordinator
Extension Educator, Fruit Production & IPM
University of Connecticut
I am the commercial fruit extension educator for the University of Connecticut and have been here since 2012. I work closely with growers, conduct extension programs as well as field research, and am a member of the UConn IPM Team. Connecticut presently has 21 Rainwise weather stations on fruit farms throughout the state with an additional 3 owned by growers. We also have 19 stations at schools as part of the UConn turf and landscape extension IPM program.
Mary Concklin collaborates with the New York State IPM Program to provide NEWA to growers in CT and is the state-wide coordinator for anyone interested in learning more about this online decision aide system.
