Distance Diagnostics on the Web

A great way to stay abreast of developing crop problems in Wisconsin is the Distance Diagnosis website. County agents troubleshoot fields, submit digital images and describe field and plant symptoms. UW crop specialists diagnose problems and make recommendations. The Distance Diagnosis website is a collaborative effort between county agriculture agents, state specialists, and the electronic publishing unit of the University of Wisconsin-Extension, Cooperative Extension.

The URL for the "Distance Diagnostics" website is http://www.uwex.edu/ces/ag/distdiag/. This site is where the most recently answered cases are shown, as well as a search the archives can be conducted for past answers. Answers are saved in a database, and can be searched by topic, date, submitter, or responder.

It is a great way to stay up-to-date with the growing season. Farmers in the north especially benefit from this website because they usually get a preview of what's coming from southern counterparts.
