The Effect of Phosphorus Placement on the Growth of White Spruce Seedlings
White spruce seedlings were grown in a sandy soil that received super-phosphate fertilizer at four rates, and placed in three ways in the soil. It was found that placing the fertilizer in a band of soil one inch below the surface produced the greatest seedling growth at all fertilizer levels. Surface placement resulted in the least growth and mixing the fertilizer throughout the entire rooting volume gave intermediate results.
