Correction Made to Degree-Day Calculator for Western Bean Cutworms

A couple of weeks ago we discovered that the biofix date for accumulating degree-days to predict development of western bean cutworms was incorrect on the "Water and Atmospheric Resources Monitoring" (WARM) Web site. The biofix date to begin accumulating degree-days for western bean cutworm should be May 1, rather than January 1 as had been indicated previously on the site. Corrections to the text and to the data generation program have been made, so the actual totals and projected totals now are based on degree-day accumulation from May 1. We regret the error.--Kevin Steffey
