Sample period 3, Day 1 (4/30/2013)

Today we began our third round of sampling. We arrived at the field site and discovered it was VERY windy. We first went through the protocol for leaf damage estimates and decided to round to the nearest whole number. Next we evaluated the whole wind situation. Ivana did a test beat, and much of the sample blew directly away from the tray. We re-evaluated our game plan for the day and decided to hold-off on beating and sweeping. Instead we placed all the sticky cards and began the leaf-damage estimates. All the leaf-damage estimates were completed on the east side and over half were completed on the west side.
