Island Apple IPM
Hi Fruit Growers,
Orchard Radar is up and rumming. Orchard Radar takes Skybit weather data and runs the data through all sorts of models. The models predict things like bloom date, apple scab infection periods, timing for insects. There is so much stuff there! Spend some time with Orchard Radar and you will be glad you did. To access Orchard Radar, go to the RI Apple IPM website and click on Greenville or Newport County, which ever location is closer to you. www.uri.edu/research/ipm
Keep your fingers crossed that freezing weather stays away!!
