A different clean-up supplier won both the competition and the contract with DAFB.
In October 1998, OEI submitted a claim for arranging its "contract" with DAFB, including costs of meetings, site visits, proposal preparation, blocking out aircraft time and the formation of Ortiz Enterprises, Inc.
DAFB moved to dismiss the appeal, contending that there was no contract with OEI--the board, in which case, would have no jurisdiction.
The board denied the motion to dismiss, holding that there was insufficient evidence to establish whether DAFB prepared an express written contract for OEI to sign, whether the regulations required review and approval of the sole source justification by an authority higher than the CO, and whether or not the agreed price was within the "warrant" of the CO.
The manual thinning was performed by a person, at 50 DAFB, leaving 10 to 15 cm from the fruit, being determined the necessary time for carrying out the practice.
3] at 45 DAFB in 'Chiripa' peach, provided the development of larger fruits, without changes in soluble solids, in the same year of application.
In Figure 1A, the doses applied at 20; 40 and 60 DAFB had a negative quadratic curve, with reduction of flowering buds similar to the applications at 20 and 40 DAFB.
1] applied at 60 DAFB was sufficient to reduce the number of flowers per plant, and consequently manual thinning without interfering with productivity per plant.
1] applied at 60 DAFB was the one that showed the highest inhibitory effect; reduced to zero the number of flowers buds in the basal segment of the shoots presented fewer gems in the middle segment and was similar to the other treatments in the apical segment.
