Pheromone Dispersion Experiment Field Test Support

Image of a forest where a pheromone dispersion test is being conducted.

Project Description:

The Forest Health Technology Enterprise Team may conduct a field experiment this year to determine the effect different forest canopy types have on the dispersion of pheromones.  MTDC has supported these projects in the past by installing and operating meteorological instrumentation, providing photography support, and measuring the canopy density.

Project Status:

If the Forest Health Technology Enterprise Team decides to conduct a pheromone dispersion experiment this year MTDC will provide assistance as needed.
