Research Project: Automated Mesoscale Pest Risk Forecast Maps for Agricultural Production and Potential Plant Biosecurity threats Project Number: 5358-22000-039-06
Project Type: Reimbursable

Start Date: Jul 26, 2010
End Date: Feb 28, 2014

Objective:
Incorporate real-time weather data into disease forecasting models for diseases of grapevines, forage grass, and hops.

Approach:
In conjunction with cooperation growers, virtual weather data and weather maps received will be evaluated for running disease forecasting models in the Willamette Valley. Actual weather data will be collected from automated weather stations installed at three field sites for each crop. Weather data to be used include temperature, daily rainfall, and leaf wetness. Virtual and actual weather data will be collected and compared.
