It requires a certain period of time after the initiation of a program for research to come of age so that conclusions can be drawn and specific recommendations developed. This was the seventh year of the Cooperative, and the record of publications is growing. A different type of tangible result of the Cooperative was the approval of a State of Maine label for the use of Garlon 3A and Garlon 4 for conifer release. These are the second and third labels to be awarded primarily as the result of research by the CFRU.
