Project Type: General Cooperative Agreement
Start Date: Dec 1, 2013
End Date: May 1, 2014
Compare, between test sites and across successive harvests, the proportion of walnuts infested by codling moth and the proportion navel orangeworm.
Obtain samples of walnuts from study sites during harvest, and store at -20C 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.
