ProFert - a new tool to maximise financial returns from fertiliser use
3rd November 2016
This presentation will report on the completion of the FWPA project ProFert-Pine - A fertiliser tool for softwood plantations in southern Australia.
Developed by TreeMod, in collaboration with a consortium of forest growers, to provide greater efficiencies in fertilizer use in plantations. Using results from over two decades of research by softwood growers across south eastern Australia, ProFert predicts end of rotation growth responses to N, P, K and S fertiliser and optimizes treatments to maximize financial return.
This webinar will introduce potential users to the tools easy-to-use interface and powerful underlying functionality.
