Pollen count and fruit set data, almond pollination study, effect of honeybee colony arrrangement


File 1: counts of pollen per open flower collected in almond orchards, at known distance from honeybee hives File 2: fruit set from open pollinated and hand pollinated almond flowers at known distance from honeybee hive placements File 3: fruit set from open pollinated and hand pollinated almond flowers in almond orchard blocks with a range of diff... more

About this Project

1180.4 HAL: Efficient Almond Pollination


1) Pollination shortfalls affect yield of many crops and use of managed honeybee colonies is a common practice for addressing the problem. However, colony density and arrangement strategies are not generally based on replicated scientific trials, so there is considerable uncertainty regarding effectiveness of different practices. We address this pr... more
