Attached is the draft programme for this event.

  • There will also betalks on knowledge gained from the ICFR's Dukuduku process trial and implications for site productivity, as well as an overview of Sappi's research into the effects of slash management and fertilisation on one-year growth of E. grandis x E. urophylla. Growth result trends from mid-rotation fertilisation of eucalypt pulpwood stands will also be presented.
  • The programme also has a pest and disease focus with an update on the very topical Patch Death problem in the region, the ICFR's insect impact research, as well as FABI's research into the biocontrol of Leptocybe.
