Abstract:To test the effect of latex, thiram, and endrin on germination of eastern white pine seed, the chemicals were applied at increasing concentrations and greenhouse germination tests conducted. After 4 weeks total germination was reduced 3.0 to 4.0 percent by latex, 1.7 percent for each pound of Thiram-75W, and 1.0 percent for each pound of Endrin-50W applied per hundredweight of seed. The endrin and thiram effects were linear and independent. Reduction in germination using recommended chemical concentrations will probably not affect field success significantly under current seeding practices.

- The Journal of Forestry is the most widely circulated scholarly forestry journal in the world. In print since 1902, the Journal has received several national awards for excellence. The mission of the Journal of Forestry is to advance the profession of forestry by keeping forest management professionals informed about significant developments and ideas in the many facets of forestry: economics, education and communication, entomology and pathology, fire, forest ecology, geospatial technologies, history, international forestry, measurements, policy, recreation, silviculture, social sciences, soils and hydrology, urban and community forestry, utilization and engineering, and wildlife management. The Journal is published bimonthly: January, March, May, July, September, and November.
