Research Project: Constructing a Pollination and Nut Set Model

Location: Honey Bee Research

Project Number: 5342-21000-016-01
Project Type: Specific Cooperative Agreement

Start Date: Jan 01, 2009
End Date: Dec 31, 2013

Objective:
Construct a WWW-based program to predict cross-pollination and nut set in almond orchards based on weather conditions, orchard design, and bee foraging population size.

Approach:
A WWW-based model will be constructed that predicts cross-pollination and nut set in almond orchards. The model will be designed as a 3-tier architecture which will include a web presentation layer, a model logic layer, and a data access layer. The web presentation layer will be based on the ASP.NET technology to allow for a rich internet user experience. The data access layer will interface with the MySQL Server database engine, the standard at the Carl Hayden Bee Research Center. The model logic layer will be written in the C# language. Once completed, the model will be able to be run from anyone with an internet connection using standard web browsers. Documents SCA with Crystal River.
