Abstract

Noninfectious bud-failure, or crazy-top as it is often called, is a disorder that affects certain almond varieties and not others. The disorder occurs extensively in Nonpareil, Peerless, Jordanolo and, to a limited extent, Mission (Texas). It is not known to occur in Ne Plus Ultra, Davey, or IXL.
