Palm and Desktop Database Versions of Crop Protection Guide for Tree Fruits in Washington

Note: some disease recommendations are for 2002 & 2003. More current ones are being added.

You can also get the text format 2006 Crop Protection Guide for Tree Fruits in Washington in Adobe pdf.

The palm databases currently require thinkDB (this was sold to dataviz, but will still work) or Smart List to Go, which is available online at (www.dataviz.com). It might also be at Staples or Office Depot, or other places that sell software. The cost of this database is about $50 and includes a desktop version (for Windows only). However, you do not need the desktop version to use the program on the palm, so macintosh palm users can still use the palm version of the database. Install the database using the directions on their web site or included with the program. You must install the database before you load the datafiles for the palm. To install the datafiles, double click on the downloaded recommendation files and they will start the hot synch manager and load the files into the install program. Press the hotsynch button and the files will be loaded and ready for use. READ THE DOCUMENTATION BELOW on how to use the files.
