Daily Disease Risk Weather-based models may be rushed to publication without adequate testing! Brown patch decision rule: Environmental risk is based on daily relative humidity and minimum temperatures. To calculate the E-value for a 24 hour period, substitute values for average relative humidity (RH) and daily minimum temperature in degrees Celsius (T) in the equation below: E = -21.5 + 0.15(RH) + 1.4(T) - 0.033(T2)

Risk is high if E 6.0 Disadvatage: Underestimates risk E-value Advantages: Convenience 3-5 day forecast Data source: SkyBit Algorithms: brown patch / Fidanza (T/RH)
