Data from the field will be used to generate equations for a model. Data collected in subsequent years will be used to test the accuracy of the equation in predicting the progression of bloom, foraging activity by bees through bloom, the size of cross-pollinating population, cross-pollination rates and nut set. Weather conditions will be monitored in the orchard throughout the bloom. Begin to write computer program for the almond pollination software packing using data from the 2008 bloom season. Documents Trust with Almond Board. Log 33385. Formerly 5342-21000-014-28T (December 2008).
