Additional Stations and the Temperature Inversion Potential Tool Inform Pesticide Schedules

The Missouri Mesonet partnered with two MU weed scientists in 2015 to monitor for temperature inversions at three stations. In 2017 they added six more stations and developed a “Temperature Inversion Potential” tool or TIP. Missouri and Tennessee amended their regulations for spraying based on the new data.
