Effect of High Rate Fertilizer Treatments of Nursery Stock Upon Its Survival and Growth in the Field
Abstract:In farming or gardening the results of fertilizer applications are judged chiefly on the basis of general development of plants or weights of the crop produced. In forest nursery practice the increase in dry weights of seedlings is only the initial and often the simplest phase of the fertilization problem. Fertilizer treatments influence the external features, as well as the internal physiological characteristics of seedlings, and may have either a beneficial or detrimental effect upon the eventual survival and growth of plantations. The potential vigor of planting stock is affected by the amount of fertilizer salts and the proportion of various nutrient constituents or the fertilizer balance.
