Effects of Snowbrush on the Growth of Sierra Gooseberry
Abstract:The greenhouse study reported in this paper confirms previous field observations to the effect that snowbrush has a favorable influence on the growth of Sierra gooseberry, probably because of the presence of nitrogen-fixing bacteria on the roots of the snowbrush. This finding throws new light on the brush question and may have silvicultural significance beyond its application to the specific problem of blister rust control.
