Soils, Nourishment and Handling

SolosNutricaoeManejoSuitable soil-forest system management and appropriate nutrient provision and replacement are essential factors for the continuous improvement of the forest-related processes.

Such improvement aims at optimizing nutrient absorption by the plant and preserving the natural soil fertility. Permanent monitoring of site quality indicators allows to maximize and stabilize the wood production under utilization of the best silvicultural practices.

For that purpose the available technologies are applied, such as semi-detailed soil survey, water and soil management and conservation, forest growth modeling, regeneration, and shrub competition management.
