The Effect of Black Locust on Soil Nitrogen and Growth of Catalpa
Abstract:Black locust, being a legume, enriches soil fertility through the nitrifying bacteria of the root nodules. It should, therefore, have the effect of stimulating the growth of other species planted in association with it. The authors studied the effect of locust upon catalpa in a plantation containing both species and found a marked growth improvement. Their data are reported here.
