Pin Oak Chlorosis--Trunk Implantations Correct Iron Deficiency
Abstract:Lime-induced chlorosis of pin oak (Quercus palustris Muench.) was corrected by the implantation in the trunk of iron salts contained in gelatin capsules. Ferric titrate and ferric ammonium citrate were most effective. No phytotoxicity was observed. Implantation wounds healed within one year, and treatments should remain effective for two, three, or more years.
