#Olive #flowering 🌸 forecast 📈 Part 2: flowering will start in earnest on Thursday, 4 May in parts of southern #Italy and #Greece and western #Turkey and #Syria. Regional forecasts show olive #pollen will reach >1000 grams/m3 in these areas. Local forecasts in Italy show olive pollen will increase on Friday in Puglia (Brindisi) and Sardinia (Cagliari) and on Sunday
The #olive #pollen 🌸 forecast over Europe for the next few days shows high pollen counts (purple areas, >1000 grains/m3) over southwestern #Spain and #Portugal as olive trees come into bloom. A big problem is that #flowering is starting at a time of extreme #heatwaves in the southern Iberian Peninsula. Weather forecasts for the region through 6 May show several
#Olive trees are coming into bloom across the Mediterranean over the next few weeks. As the new season kicks off, it’s a good time to calibrate expectations for the year to come. The 2021-2031 EU Agricultural Outlook forecast #oliveoil production would grow by about 20% in the next decade. However, in 2022/23 there was a record-low harvest of 1.4 million

Yield predictions from flowering Conducting a quick, visual assessment of olive flowering with Sensonomic’s mobile app can produce highly useful estimates of future yields. We have developed specialized algorithms to predict final harvest weight from flowering measurements with an accuracy of 81% down to plots of 50 ha. Predicting total harvest weight early in the
How technology can align incentives for producers, investors, and society Technology can only take you so far. Investors play a crucial role in making land assets more valuable over time. Land assets can provide both annual cash flow from agricultural production, and asset value increase over time. The asset typically increases in value due to limited supply, or through having
Producers can get a head start on planning for the harvest season by tracking how the extent and timing of flowering varies across their groves. In the Mediterranean region, flowering typically occurs between April and May.
Every spring olive producers carefully record the number of flowers on a sample of their trees with an important purpose in mind. The extent of flowering can be an early and strong predictor of the weight of olives at harvest in autumn with an accuracy of 60-75%.
