The WSU DAS provides advance warning of when key events will occur in tree fruit orchards. However, to better understand the current season, sometimes we need to think about the past. For the first time, the DAS team has created a new tool called Time Machine that will allow users to get up to 5 years of historical model output at stations they have subscribed to. Early in the crop season, this tool may be helpful for users who wish to review their management from previous years or when key events occurred. As the season progresses, this tool can also be helpful for users who wish to compare across years and determine if events of the current season are occurring before, after, or at the same dates as events from previous seasons.
A how to video on using Time Machine is provided below. We hope this is a new helpful feature for DAS users.
