The Results of Laboratory Tests as Applied to Large Scale Extraction of Red Pine Seed
Abstract:Interest in forest tree seed has increased in recent years due to the fact that it is now a commodity which must be had in very large amounts to meet the needs of federal and state reforestation programs. Along with this has developed an insistence for obtaining specific information about the quality of the seed, as affected not only by origin, but also by its treatment during the extraction process and in storage. An experience is reported in which a line of investigations directly associated with tree production has proved of immediate, practical benefit.
