    Description

    The Agenda 2020 Program is a partnership among government agencies, the forest products industry, and academia to develop technology capable of enhancing forest productivity, sustaining environmental values, increasing energy efficiency, and improving the economic competitiveness of the United States forest sector. In November 2006, the USDA Forest Service, in partnership with the Agenda 2020 Technology Alliance, the American Forest and Paper Association, the National Council for Air and Stream Improvement, and U.S. Department of Energy, organized a national workshop to document and discuss significant achievements and build support for the Agenda 2020 Sustainable Forest Productivity program and related research. The workshop was organized into sessions on: (1) Forest Management, Soil Productivity, and Information Technology; (2) Biotechnology and Tree Improvement; (3) Physiology, Growth, and Wood Quality; and (4) Ecological Functions of Managed Forests. Since 1999, Forest Service Research & Development and partners have funded 66 projects. A summary of key results and potential future research direction will be presented.
