|During the field visits, the field key was used to identify current CWD on the blocks – debate occurred over the usefulness of the key, the use of current pictures, etc. Using the field guide, participants generally came to the same conclusions regarding CWD levels.|
Due to the variability of CWD across bocks, it was discussed, how the key (pictoral guide specifically) would have to be used more at a specific location on the block and then different areas of the block then combined for an overall block measure of CWD.
Usefulness of additional photos was also discussed.Further input following the session was solicited - none was provided.
