This project developed an online crop management tool that allows vegetable growers in Oregon to time farming and marketing activities using degree-days.
The educational web-page has instructions for using the Croptime Calculator and fact sheets about using degree-day models. The site also includes information for potential collaborators interested in collecting data for new Croptime models.The Croptime Growth Stage Guide describes how to collect crop development data and provides a data collection template.
