4 Continuity of Treatment/Planting Spots

Planting spots may be formed by: treatments that cover the whole site (such as windrowing slash); treatments that are in continuous or intermittent strips; or, treatments in discrete patches or spots. The target number of plantable spots/ha and the desired spacing must be considered, especially when using intermittent strip or spot treatments. For row-type treatments (e.g., disc trenching, Bräcke patch), fixed equipment settings or difficult site conditions may make uniform spacing impossible. Under such conditions, the total number of prepared planting spots may still be created if "in-row spacing" is adjusted to compensate for wider spacing between rows.
