ICFR Regional Field Day in Limpopo


The first ICFR field day for 2014 promises to be a really excellent one - with a range of interesting and topical talks, so please join us on Tuesday 4 March at KLF's Hanglip Plantation, near Louis Trichardt in Limpopo for this event!

Our sincere thanks to Alistair Stewart and Juan-Ray Greyling of the Molozi Trust for their support in organising and hosting this event, and to KLF to providing the venue.

The field day begins at 08h30 for 09h00, and we are co-hosting this field day with FABI and the programme for this event is attached.

Indoor presentations include current research by FABI into relevant pests and pathogens, 
  • Talks from the ICFR on climate change and risk mapping, as well as
  • An update on some of the collaborative research by the SA Pitch Canker Control Programme on Fusarium circinatum.
  • ICFR research which has lead to the development of Industry-level planting guidelines, as well as
  • An update on the research looking at late rotation fertilisation of Eucalyptus sawtimber stands.
  • A key part of the programme is an update on the operational activities of the SA Sirex Control Programme, results from the national monitoring programme as well as an in-field demonstrations.


Please pass the invitation onto your colleagues who may be interested in attending, especially anyone in your companies in the area, who may not be on this mailing list.

Directions to the venue are included with the programme.
