The personal computer version of the REDAPOL apple fruit set prediction model has been validated in Arizona and Washington orchards. The PC-REDAPOL computer simulation model is designed to predict the percentage of blossoms setting fruit on apple trees. PC-REDAPOL predictions were within the 95% CI of the actual average percentage of blossoms setting fruit in 16 out of 23 model validation tests. The model also accurately predicted fruit set on limbs where honey bee, Apis mellifera L., visitation and pollination were stopped at different points during bloom. PC-REDAPOL has all the features of the original REDAPOL model, plus additions such as the ability to update estimates of the honey bee foraging population on apple trees during a simulation, pest management information, and a degree-day calculator. The program runs on IBM compatible personal computers and is available on request.
