Description: Agricultural yield strategy simply aims to increase number of grain bearing stalks per acre. Forestry strategies look to thinning, fertilizer, and genetics, each to provide gains. The agricultural strategies applied to Douglas-fir appear to be impractical for long rotations. Concern is expressed for commitments to perpetual inputs of materials and energy to keep a yield above the land’s carrying capacity. Adapted natural populations are the major resource in keeping a yield improvement strategy trouble-free.
Keywords: Yield strategy, tree improvement, agriculture, Douglas-fir, Pseudotsuga menziesii
