Completed Measurement Projects :
With the cooperation of Glades Crop Care Inc. based in Jupiter, Florida, AFT obtained pesticide application data. This data included the 2000 and 2001 growing seasons for four fields of tomato and pepper crops. AFT researchers entered this data into various environmental indicator models to examine how well the models work in the Florida pedo-climatic region. Preliminary results are contained in a progress report to the Environmental Protection Agency. Additional results are forthcoming.
Upcoming Measurement Projects :
With the cooperation of the Lodi-Woodbridge Winegrape commission, AFT recently obtained pesticide application data. AFT researchers will enter this data into several environmental indicator models to further examine how certain models perform in different pedo-climatic regions. This analysis will also help the Lodi-Woodbridge Winegrape commission develop and enhance their own environmental indicator model.
With the cooperation of the University of Wisconsion potato IPM team and the collaboration of the Wisconsin Potato and Vegetable Growers Association with the World Wildlife Fund (WPVGA-WWF), AFT obtained pesticide application data for fields of Wisconsin potatoes. This data will provide AFT with additional opportunities to examine how certain environmental indicator models perform in differing pedo-climatic regions.
