These maps show either degree day accumulation (useful for estimating pest or plant development), or disease severity accumulation (useful for understanding the risk of onset of certain fungal plant diseases). Generating a map may take 10-15 seconds for the upper Midwest region or 5 seconds for Wisconsin only. Once a map has been generated it will load automatically.

To view these models and data in a more interactive framework, check out our Vegetable and Disease Forecasting Network (VDIFN) website.
Use the options below to view or generate a degree day or disease severity map. Currently it is only possible to get tabular data for degree days on this site from this page, but we may add the ability to download disease severity data in the future.
