The New DAS

Wednesday Feb 13, 2019

We gave the DAS website a major makeover that will launch in early March. This long-anticipated upgrade entailed an entire rebuild of DAS and was necessary to keep up with browser and mobile capabilities as well as to prepare DAS for modular growth. We kept all of DAS’s functionality while noticeably improving the mobile experience.

How was DAS for British Columbia Developed?

Tuesday Jan 01, 2019

Climate change is affecting the timing of pests and disease emergence during the growing season, and the tree fruit industry in the Okanagan valley in British Columbia, Canada wanted a tool that provides time-sensitive decision management support. The successful Washington State Decision Aid System (DAS) was adapted to the Okanagan region of British Columbia, Canada in 2018.

What is DAS?

A collaborative project between WSU Extension and WSU Agricultural Research Center.

WSU-DAS is a web-based platform designed to transfer time-sensitive information to decision makers in the tree fruit industry. It runs insect, disease, disorder, and horticultural models to estimate the current status of the issue and links that to appropriate management and pesticide recommendations.
