Please Participate in Our Online NEWA Survey!

The Network for Environment and Weather Applications (NEWA) needs your input — it’ll only take about 10 minutes of your time.

Whether you’ve used NEWA’s online pest forecast models for years or have never used NEWA at all, we will benefit from your responses. Why? Because we are building a new website at, one that’ll be as easy to use on your smart phone as on your desktop, and we want to build it the way you want it to be.

NEWA is an online agricultural decision support system that uses real time weather data, streamed over the internet from 573 weather stations throughout the Northeast, Midwest and mid-Atlantic. NEWA provides insect and plant disease pest management tools, degree days, and weather information for growers, consultants, Extension educators, faculty, and others.

NEWA models and resources are available free of charge to Pennsylvania growers due to support from the SHAP Extension Committee. They can be used to make informed localized crop management decisions.

The NEWA website will be upgraded soon and we want to know what users—new and old, want and need out of the new website.

All responses are anonymous and confidential and will not be shared with any outside group.
