Ex 2: (Phase 2.) Simulating the Herbicide Treatment

This phase of crop plan design deals with adding events to simulate the application of herbicide.

  1. Move Down to Next Event button () to activate the first Grow event.
  2. Click the Insert Event button (), select Thin and press OK to open the Thinning dialog
        Species  - Dec
     
      Min DBH  -  -1 
       
    Removal Rule - With the Largest Diameter Trees First
       
    Removal Amount Rule - Remove a fixed % of Density
       
    Amount - 100
  3. Click OK when all entries are correct.
  4. Right-click the first Grow event
  5. Click the Edit button () to activate the edit dialog.
    1. Enter stand ages 15 16 17 18 19 20   in the Grow to box. These are the stand ages at which yields will be calculated.
    2. Click the Single growth Schedule option button if it is not already set.
    3. Click OK when all entries are correct.
  6. Click the Move Down using the Next Event button () to activate the Second Grow event
  7. Click the Insert Event button (), select Regen and press OK to open the Regen dialog.
    1. Click on the Trees (Stand <= 25 years) Tab.
    2. Choose Stand Origin as PerfSurveyAllTrees.
    3. Site index - 16
    4. Tree Characteristics

           Species -  Aw
         
      Av Density/ha - 3400
         
      Av Tree Age - 6
         
      Av Ht - 1.6
         
      stDev Ht - 0.3
         
      Max Ht - 2
         
      Av DBH - 0.4

          stDev DBH - 0.4

    5. Stand Settings

          Stand ID - Aw

          Gap Area Loss % - 20

       

    Press the Add button in the Tree List Parameters box.

    Click OK when all entries are correct.

  8. Click the Move Down to Next Event button () as needed to activate the Grow  event (highlighted in yellow)
    1. Confirm ages to 150.
  9. Right-click the second Grow event to insert a Record Stand event immediately after the thin event.
    1. Click the Insert Event button on the MGM Toolbar or the shortcut menu (right-click on the event to display this menu).
    2. Select Record Stand.
    3. Click OK.
  10. Save the Crop Plans worksheet by clicking on the MGM Toolbar  Save button () (not the Excel save button!).
  11. The following table should be similar, but not necessarily identical, to the plan you have just created.
