Implement a large-scale VOC collection system capable of ambient analyses, to collect pistachio volatiles at specific phenological stages of growth. Collected volatiles will be subjected to electroantennogram analyses (EAG) to determine ability to elicit responses to navel orangeworm. VOCs with positive responses will be formulated into synthetic blends and the blends tested for field efficacy. Documents Trust with California Pistachio Board. Log 38105.
