Plantation Yield Regulation System PLYRS: A Computer Based System to Assist in the Management of Pinus radiata Plantations
PLYRS is a modern, integrated forest management and yield prediction system that assists users in managing their plantation estate. Its primary function is to assist plantation managers in the preparation of detailed harvesting plans that are consistent with an organisation’s long term management goals and commitments. The system can be used to minimise risk and to maximise the returns from a plantation within the constraints of commitments and resource availability.
PLYRS has been designed to form the basis of a system that can be adapted to the management of a range of plantation species through the implementation of appropriate biometric functions.
