Annual Almond Reports
CPPU for Reduced Preharvest Drop and Improved Kernel, Shell and Hull Size in Almond
Treatments of the plant growth regulator, CPPU, did not increase the size of any portion of the nut, or aid in reducing drop. Additional testing is warranted. Submitted to California Almond Board for 2006.
Trial Testing Dormex in Almond for Non-infectious Bud Failure (Crazy Top)
Application during peak bloom resulted in crop loss that would probably preclude adoption of the practice. Future work should focus on application during the dormant season. Submitted to California Almond Board for 2006.
