Fusiform Rust Prediction Models for Site-Prepared Slash and Loblolly Pine Plantations in the Southeast
Abstract:Several workers have reported relationships between the incidence of fusiform rust in pine plantations and climatic, edaphic, biotic, and cultural factors. These relationships were investigated quantitatively with a regionwide databank compiled from several replicated unthinned stand density studies. Data from over 2,000 remeasured permanent plots were used to develop regression models that predict the proportion of trees per acre with one or more fusiform rust stem galls. Predictor variables are geographic location, age of the plantation, and site index. Use of the models is illustrated with an example. South. J. Appl. For. 10:145-51, Aug. 1986.
