Decision Support Systems
Making predictions is difficult – especially about the future. But that’s just what fruit producers wrestle with every day. In order to help growers make timely and economically sensible decisions, WSU scientists have parsed a mountain of data on weather and pests. The result? The WSU AgWeatherNet (AWN) and Decision Aid System (DAS)– two tools to help orchardists bank against the future. For more information about what these two tools are and how they are used please visit our (AWN & DAS) pages.
We host an archive of recent tree fruit relevant publications written or coauthored by WSU researchers and extension personnel. Each publication is categorized by the crop and topic area. If you are looking for the most recent publications visit our “Publications” page.
We provide a short list of services available to the tree fruit industry and the public. We hope to grow this list over time. If you know of a useful service please let us know by using our “contact us” form. To see our list of services, visit the “Services” page.
