in southern pine seed orchards. Gary DeBarr, Hans Van Buijtenen, and the tree improvement cooperatives deserve a lot of credit for carrying out the many large-scale tests that were required. Larry Barber made a significant contribution when he developed aerial application procedures that insure that pesticide coverage is correct. Seed production and gene diversity is an important aspect when using improved materials like seed orchard crops. Seed orchards crops derive generally from a limited number of trees. But if it is a common wind-pollinated species much pollen will come from outside the seed orchard and widen the genetic diversity. The genetic gain of the first. The Southern Pine Beetle Chapter Direct Control. Ronald F. Billings — Principal Entomologist and Head, Forest Pest Control Section, Texas Forest Service, Lufkin, TX. Introduction. The search for practical and effective methods to protect pine resources from the southern pine beetle has challenged scientists and forest managers for many years. White Pine Seed Orchard: H&AWOA has an agreement with Ministry of Natural Resources (MNR) to care for the White Pine Seed Orchard in Haldimand. The seed orchard was established by MNR in and managed until In , H&AWOA approached the MNR about the orchard. It is now managed co-operatively between MNR Guelph District.

the southern pines (Pinus spp.) during the past four decades. Seed orchards produce seeds for the vast majority of the more than 1 billion pine seedlings produced annually in the south- ern United States (Dougherty and Duryea 1).

In aerial application trials conducted in and with ReTain on nonpareil almonds, nutmeat yields increased by pounds — or a % yield increase — over the untreated check. Applications were made via fixed-wing or rotary-wing aircraft at application volumes ranging from 15 to 20 gallons per acre.

In a study assessing priorities for research in forestry insecticide application technology, Campbell P.A. Kenney, , R.B. Ekblad, R.J. Dumbauld, J.E. Rafferty, H.W. Flake, and N.A.

Southern pine tree improvement programs require an ample supply of improved seeds, 1 but production from southern pine seed orchards has often been disappointing. If high production is to be maintained. yields must be monitored and causes of seed losses must be identified. Techniques for determining seed efficiency were first used for red pine. Seed Orchards, based on the June Final Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) for Integrated Pest Management. Alternative B was the proposed action and BLM’s preferred alternative in the Draft and Final EISs. Alternative B would give the seed orchards access to a full range of pest management methods, including biological. pine [99] and fewer rare alleles [97, 98]) in seed orchards compared with the species’ natural populations; however, seed orchards may possess an even greater allelic richness.
