Optimising productivity of hardwood plantations: yield gap analysis for Eucalyptus globulus plantations in southern Australia

By defining the potential yield of plantations, estimating the gap between potential and actual yield, and attributing parts of the gap to major limiting factors, this project will provide a framework for making decisions on the location of plantations and the improvement of yields due to silvicultural practices. These might include weed control, thinning and nutritional management.
