MSU's Enviro-weather provides Michigan's agriculture with online access to weather-based pest, crop and production management information for decision-making. MGWIC provided funding to support the cost of maintenance, repair, and operation of four Enviro-weather stations in wine grape growing regions (Northport, Old Mission, Scottdale and Berrien Spring, MI) during 2014. Each station was visited for maintenance, equipment calibration and repair; additional visits were made for emergency repair. Users accessed these stations frequently through the Enviro-weather website. Use of stations, grape- grape-specific Enviro-weather tools and non-crop specific tools important to the Grape and Wine Industry has increased steadily and substantially over time.
