OFM biofix for Winchester and Rappahannock/Madison county was on April 3. The captures in central Virginia orchards where traps were deployed for this purpose have been too low to see a consistent pattern, although we will likely use the same date for that area. Rainy/windy conditions in southwest Virginia seem to have affected captures through last week, but we will make a determination of biofix for that area soon. We will begin our twice weekly reporting of degree-day accumulations and management recommendations for OFM this week, via this blog.
Until next time, best wishes.
