The GDDTracker Team is proud to launch the latest version of our turf pest tracking web site. We have been very hard at work to bring you an even better product in 2011. You can now drop a star on the map to mark your location and with the new Google Maps interface, you can zoom in for a closer look. Another major change for 2011 is the addition of Ohio to the GDDTracker network; joining Michigan, Indiana and Illinois. The Ohio Turfrass Foundation and John Deere Landscapes join a growing list of supporters to fund this latest expansion. Welcome to all the Buckeyes. Additional new features will be coming on-line in the near future.

Predicting pest and weed outbreaks with calendar-based timing is unreliable. Heat accumulation units (growing degree days) is a better method to track biological activity of important outbreaks. Visit GDDTracker today to sign up for free email alerts for your location.
