New Hullsplit Prediction Model

The University of California has developed a tool for estimating hullsplit based on bloom date, weather data and phenology modeling. The new hullsplit model will help growers predict the date of harvest maturity early in the season to help facilitate late-season orchard management decisions. It was developed using data from an Almond Board-funded eight-year study conducted on important almond cultivars in three major growing regions of the Central Valley.
