This article describes the current status, identification, and control, of noninfectious bud failure (BF) as it affects particular almond varieties in California. Characteristics of the disorder were described in the accompanying article. A recent survey taken to estimate the prevalence of BF in affected varieties in the almond districts of California is summarized in tables 1, 2, and 3, and is discussed here.
