Project Number: 2034-43000-037-37-A
Project Type: Cooperative Agreement
Start Date: Dec 1, 2013
End Date: May 1, 2014
Compare, between test sites, the proportion of walnuts infested by codling moth and the proportion navel orangeworm.
Obtain samples of walnuts from study sites during harvest, and keep in cold storage until evaluation. Crack open individual walnuts, and note defect categories, if any. If insect infested, categorize damage based on presence of life stages, webbing, or frass. PIs will meet in annual conferences in Portland and Bodega Bay to compare results and plan future research.
