Fertilizing with Ammonium Nitrate improves Red Pine Seed Production
Abstract:In 1962 a test was undertaken to determine the effectiveness of fertilizing with ammonium nitrate (33.5 percent nitrogen) as a means of increasing seed production of 45- to 75-year-old red pine. Fertilizer, applied at the rate of 300 pounds per acre at the time of bud break, increased average cone production from 844 to 1.187 cones per tree.
