PA-PIPE

The Pennsylvania Pest Information Platform for Extension and Education (PA PIPE) has been developed as a collaborative effort between Penn State College of Agricultural Sciences faculty, the Pennsylvania State Department of Agriculture and ZedX, Inc. to provide an early warning system for key pests affecting agriculture and forestry in Pennsylvania.

The models developed utilize weather data, combined with local observations from researchers, local growers, and specialists, which are then processed with algorithim's intended to predict important events in crop, insect, and disease development cycles. The result is a spatial view of the development and significance of diseases, insects, weeds, and crop conditions for the entire Pennsylvania region.

The system is not intended for use when making important economic management decisions, but to help target the timing and need for monitoring of key insects, diseases, and crops in the area.

If you need further interpretation contact your local County Extension Office or the Penn State Academic Department (i.e. Entomology, Plant Pathology, or Crops and Soils Science).
