Crop Plan Phase 2

Ex 4: (Phase 2.) Design the management scenario

This phase of crop plan design deals with growth, thinning, harvesting and regeneration. Here we will show how to set up a simple scenario of growing, thinning and growing the residual stand by inserting new events. New events are always inserted before the active event (highlighted in yellow).

  1. Click the Move Down to Next Event button () as needed to activate the Grow  event (highlighted in yellow). You can also right-click on an event row to make it the active event and show the event dialog menu, or you can right-click the event row to make it the active event.
  2. Click the Edit button () to activate the edit dialog.
    1. Enter stand ages 5 10 13  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.
  3. Click the Move Down to Next Event button () to move down to next event (End).
  4. Click the Insert Event button (), select Thin and press OK to open the Thin dialog.
    1. In the Species drop-down box, select Aw as the species to thin.
    2. In the Removal Rule drop-down box, select Proportionally across all diameters.
    3. In the Removal Amount Rule drop-down box, select Remove until the following density is achieved (trees/ha)  and enter 1500 in the text field next to it.
    4. In the Minimum Dbh box,  insert -1 to include the removal of trees below breast height.
    5. Press OK.
  5. Click the Move Down to Next Event button () to move down to next event (End).
  6. Click the Insert button (), select Grow and press OK to activate the Grow event dialog.
    1. Enter stand ages   15 20 30 40 50 60 70 80 in the Grow to box.
    2. Click OK when all entries are correct.
  7. Save the Crop Plans worksheet by clicking on the MGM Toolbar  Save button () (not the Excel save button!).
  8. The following table should be similar, but not necessarily identical, to the plan you have just created.
<td x:str="Schedule := " style="color: windowtext; width: 231px; padding: 0px; border: medium none; text-align: left; background: #ffff99;">Schedule :=1 5 3 <td x:str="Schedule := " style="color: windowtext; width: 231px; padding: 0px; border: medium none; text-align: left;">Schedule := 4 3 10 10 10 10 20

We are now ready to design the recording of results (Phase 3).
