Thus, an optimum pre- harvest
management is required for superior quality in citrus fruits (Din et al.
That means the methods they will employ throughout the production and harvest
process will vary.

in 1997 (2 L [ha.
Forest managers were rewarded for keeping harvest
levels up and expenses down.
During the 1991-1992 El Nino, southern Africa weathered its worst drought this century and cereal harvests
throughout the region fell by half.
5 percent in 2004 while the value of the harvests
jumped by nearly 12 percent, the California Forest Products Commission reported today in its second annual report on the state of the industry.

The Commission attributed the sharp decline in harvesting to two primary factors: a near-elimination of harvesting trees on government land and increasing regulatory red-tape that makes it harder and excessively expensive to responsibly harvest

In contrast, the Forest Service, G4, and The Wilderness Society studies actually predict an increase in private timber-harvest
levels in response to harvest
declines and increased timber prices on federal lands.
9 million acres of timberlands in the two states verifies that Weyerhaeuser is meeting strict requirements to ensure that it grows and harvests
trees in a manner that protects natural resources and renews forests.
Because Ontario loggers don't own their land, and the government loses money on every tree it harvests
, neither has an economic incentive to replant.
Not only do winemakers expect a large harvest

Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Pinot Gris and Pinot Meunier grapes, using its famous "Friendly Yellow Boxes" or FYBs, from over 50 vineyards in Napa Valley, including 150 estate acres.
Extrapolation from these volume tables projects timber growth on the entire forest, which provides foresters with the data to gauge timber harvests
over a 10-year period.
