Innovative nursery management solutions to sustainably manage root disease, improve nursery utilization, and enhance resilience and productivity of planted pines
This project aims to develop management strategies to combat the increasing incidence of root rot disease in nursery stock, and restrict its spread to plantation sites, by finding the optimal balance of fertiliser, fungicide, and beneficial microbe treatments.
Field trials will be used to refine treatments to ensure improved establishment and resilience post-planting. This project addresses the priorities of the National Institute for Forest Products Innovation (NIFPI) to preserve a sustainable supply chain through improved seedling health and the provision of trees with attributes for long-term resilience and productivity.
