These apps connect you with timely information and useful features for sugarbeet growers.
This app utilizes information from the North Dakota Agriculture Weather Network (NDAWN) to customize recommendations for sugarbeet growers in North Dakota and Minnesota. From the list of NDAWN stations, a user can select the weather station nearest to their location to view weather data, soil temperature information, and conditions that favor disease and insect development on demand and in the field. Sugarbeet Agronomy is now available wherever you are.
Real-time weather data from the North Dakota Agricultural Weather Network (NDAWN) is used to detect low-level air temperature inversions. An air temperature inversion occurs when the air temperatures near the ground are colder than the air above. The cooler and, therefore, denser air may make spray particles drift off target, often referenced as spray drift. Because spraying during an air temperature inversion is in violation of label instructions, this app, once an inversion is detected, sends a push notification to the user informing them that spraying may no longer be advisable. These inversion alerts are re-sent occasionally until the inversion is no longer present for the station selected. Besides inversion alerts, weather data, including wind speed and temperature data which is also critical information while spraying, is available. All NDAWN stations update current weather conditions every five minutes.
The Sugarbeet Production Guide provides useful information to assist North Dakota and Minnesota sugarbeet growers in making timely management decisions. The app brings critical information about sugarbeet cultivation, from seed to harvest at your fingertips. - Developer - NDSU Plant Pathology
