NEWA evaluates crop risk using real-time weather data
NEWA uses a network of grower-owned and operated weather stations to obtain farm weather data in real time. Digital vegetable models use these data to provide real-time crop risk forecasts for the next five days. NEWA also stores historical data and risk assessments for record-keeping. The following vegetable models are available to everyone for use. Watch the videos to learn more.
NEWA is useful for record-keeping and insurance
NEWA serves up historical weather data records from every linked weather station. Hourly records and Daily summaries up to 12 months within a single calendar year are available for direct download. Learn more about this resource below.
Track your own degree days
Customize a degree day accumulation model, even if NEWA doesn’t have a resource for the insect or disease you are concerned about. Learn how to customize this tool for your own use.
Get timely answers to your questions
NEWA has a system for tracking and resolving questions, concerns, bugs, and comments. Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and a live human being will respond within one or two business days or a bit longer during busy springtime periods. An electronic ticket is generated so we can answer your question or concern in a timely manner, even during the busiest times, without losing track of it when many requests are pending.
