Storage Scald of Apples

Predicting Third Generation of CM

Tuesday August 01, 2017 12:10am
Predicting the extent of the third generation of codling moth (CM) is based on a statistical relationship of the degree-days historically found on 1 August and at the end of the season on 1 November. We update this prediction roughly every 10 days after 15 August because the DD prediction for 1 November gets more accurate as we get closer.
