Nitrogen Prediction Models for AlmondInterpreting Early Season Leaf Samples
(Excel files for download)

These models, available in Excel format, were developed from 4 years of research in Nonpareil almond orchards. Download the Models for more information, including leaf sampling (collect in mid-April) and N values (predicted for July).
