Scion welcomes you to attend an interactive workshop on site-specific management for productivity gains in planted forests using soil and foliage information. The programme will provide guidelines on how to interpret soil and foliage data and link the findings to forest productivity.
Making the most of your forest soil resources is about understanding what is limiting growth and what can be done to change it. The workshop will provide existing and new information on planted forest soil and foliage nutrition analysis, and how to interpret the data to understand nutrient limitations of a site to manage forest productivity.

The purpose of the workshop is to give forest managers confidence in managing planted forest productivity using soil and foliage information together with other site conditions (climatic, genetic and silvicultural regimes).

This workshop is designed for those who want to know:

• How to interpret soil and foliage laboratory outputs
• How to use the information to understand if the site is nutrient limited
• What is the gap in nutrients needed to reach a target productivity
• The future outlook in using soil and foliage indicators in planted forests

Two workshops will be held covering the same material. One in Rotorua (12 July) and the other in Christchurch (26 July).

We look forward to seeing you there.
