About NEWA

Our mission is to deliver weather information and apps based on the weather collected that support and advance integrated pest management (IPM) and best management practices for agricultural and green industries. Our vision is that NEWA will become the source for weather-related information for the IPM practitioner in the Northeast.

The value of weather data is greater when it can be shared. NEWA makes it possible for farmers to share resources for weather data collection, analysis, distribution, and archiving. More About NEWA...

NEWA was formed in 1995 and continues to evolve to stay current with advances in pest and weather forecasting. It is operated by and funded through the NYS IPM Program.
