Plantation nutrition management – Lessons from South-Eastern USA

A study tour was undertaken to south-eastern USA in June / July 2008 in one of the largest
and most important forest regions in the world. The aim was to learn about plantation
nutrition management and research. The tour included attendance at the 11th North
American Forest Soils Conference and post-conference tour across Virginia, a visit to the
Forest Nutrition Cooperative (FNC) and some important field trials along with visits to a
number of forest companies in the region.
