Abstract:

Seedlings of black locust (Robinia pseudoacacia L.) were grown in specific nutrient-deficient solutions for 16 weeks. Specific gravity and tensile strength parallel to the grain were measured from samples of the stem. The properties of the xylem of the seedlings grown in the deficient solutions differed significantly from those of seedlings grown in a complete nutrient solution.

Keywords: Black locust; breaking strength; mineral nutrition; modulus of elasticity; wood specific gravity
