NDAWN Celebrates 25 Years
Since September is National Preparedness Month, it’s the perfect time to recognize one of the leading sources in preparing for crop protection. Since its inception in 1989, the North Dakota Agricultural Weather Network (NDAWN) has been providing real-time weather data to assist with crop management in North Dakota. Over the course of 25 years, NDAWN has seen expansion from 6 original weather stations to 75, streamlined access capabilities to anyone with internet, been credited with helping save the potato crop, and developed into a dynamic resource for the agricultural community. With assistance from the North Dakota State University Extension Service in keeping the stations operational, NDAWN has now reached their 25th anniversary.
