The New Zealand Dryland Forests Initiative (NZDFI) is a commercially-oriented research and development project. It aims to develop genetically improved planting stock and management systems for ground-durable eucalypt species suited to New Zealand’s dryland regions.

Durable Eucalypts on Drylands: Protecting and Enhancing Value - Workshop Proceedings available

In April 2017, the University of Canterbury and NZDFI ran a workshop, Durable Eucalypts on Drylands: Protecting and Enhancing Value. The workshop was hosted by the Marlborough Research Centre, Blenheim. 

The workshop updated participants on the wide range of durable eucalypt research activity in New Zealand. Several overseas speakers made valuable contributions to the presentations and discussions over the two-day event.

Full Proceedings available for download here. 

Videos and pdfs of all presentations are also available. 

We would like to acknowledge the support of all those who contributed to the workshop, and of our sponsors: Ministry for Primary Industries, AgMardt, the Neil Barr Farm Forestry Foundation and the Specialty Wood Products Research Partnership.
