Fertilizer and Phenotypic Selection Increase Growth and Flowering of Young Virginia Pine
Abstract:Five levels of fertilizer were applied to 10 Virginia pine families selected on the basis of vegetative or reproductive growth. Both fertilizer and parental selection significantly increased growth and flowering of 3-year-old progeny. Fertilizer X family interactions were not significant for any of the vegetative or flowering variables except male flower production. Correlations between vegetative and reproductive growth are presented for the individual study trees and between the parents and progeny. Forest Sci. 22:461-467.
