When we’re thinning, we scan the blossoms and the Vivid XV can tell me how many clusters are out there on each tree. I can look at the data at my desk with my coffee, see I have way too many blossoms on a section of my Ambrosia, as an example, and decide what to mix in my tank for spraying that specific area. With hand thinning, I can get right down to a tree and decide how many apples we need to take off that day. It’s not guess work any more.
