Description

"This location has been used as an agricultural research station for more than 5 years for conducting research experiments with agricultural crops and grasses. The test site was used for experimental planting of grasses. Site preparation involved herbicide application to remove existing grasses, subsoiling, preparation for irrigation installation, and planting of trees in flat beds. The areas surrounding the test site consist of a grape research farm, mixed stands of hardwoods and pine, and a residential area.
Up to 4,000 containerized trees, inc luding non-transgenic trees could be transferred to this field test site and planted in field plots of up to 7 acres over the next three years. The existing field trials of the same clone (EH1) were established at this site on approximately 3.0 acres that are now covered under permit 08-039-102rm. These trials would be transferred to permit # 08-011-106rm to allow flowering." (APHIS 2010)
