As predicted, flower standing crops were very different when many vs. few flowers were pollinated each day. When we only pollinated 30 flowers per treatment per day (red line), there were approximately 400 flowers in bloom per treatment per day. When we pollinated all flowers in bloom daily (blue line), there were only about 150 open flowers per day.
