This paper presents the application of a process-based model (PBM) to the management of 181,000 ha of Eucalyptus grandis plantations in Brazil owned by Aracruz Celulose (Arcel). The company recently adopted the process-based model 3-PG (Physiological Principles Predicting Growth) for use in research applications and as an analytical tool as part of its forest management systems. The model is being used to predict potential productivity in terms of forest volume in current production areas and...[Show more]
