Racemes with flowers: (from stem counts). Just after the prebloom spray, the
no clip strips had the most open flowers, when bees were first released. Late
clipped strips hadnít yet come into bloom. They reached peak bloom 5 weeks
later just after the bloom spray, after no and early clipped strips had passed
peak bloom. The total amount of bloom over the season was reduced by the clipping
treatments relative to the no clip treatment.
