MyPest Page -
IPM Pest and Plant Disease Models and Forecasting

  For Pest Modeling in the US for Agricultural, Pest Management, and Plant Biosecurity Decision Support in the US
Introduction:
This website combines US weather and climate data (29,000+ locations) with plant pest and disease models to support a wide range of agricultural decision making needs. We currently serve over 110 degree-day and 23 hourly weather models for integrated pest management (IPM), invasive species, biological control, and other uses for the full USA.
Our primary Degree-Day (DD) Model & Calculator Interfaces (see Shortcut Links tab for others):
      
  1. "ddmodel.us" Google map DD model interface (standard version)
  2. "MyPest Page" Disease risk, DD, other models (also see Quick Start tab)
Additional Resources:
      
  1. What's new
  2. Online tutorials
  3. Degree-day usage instructions
  4. How-to make webpage bookmarks (technical document #1)
  5. How-to make "mashups" with uspest.org charts and tables (tech. doc. #2)
  6. Frequently asked questions
  7. Related web sites
  8. 2016 past usage/no. DD model runs
Presentations:
      
  1. Pest Event Mapping: A New Tool for Prediction of Insect Phenology (paper .pdf) (slides .pdf)
  2. Crops and Climate - Has it been getting warmer in the Pacific NW & how will that affect plant/crop phenology? Small Farms Conference, Corvallis OR Feb 28, 2015 (slides .pdf)
  3. Medium- and Extended-Range Weather and Climate Forecasts Scaled and Tested for IPM Decision Support in US States NW Climate Conf., Skamania, WA Nov. 2016 (poster .pdf)
  4. Systems modeling of crop and insect development for agricultural decision support OSU Horticulture Seminar, Corvallis, OR Nov. 2017 (60 min. video)
Partners and Support:
We are actively collaborating and partnering with Fox Weather, LLC and the National Weather Service for forecasts, with the OSU PRISM Climate group for climate data, with the W. Region IPM Center as a Signature Program, and with numerous state and private IPM decision support programs and entities. Funding has been provided by numerous USDA NIFA grants, USDA PPQ, RMA and ipmPIPE grants, NPDN grants, WR-IPM Center and Oregon Statewide IPM funds, and local and regional commodity grants.
