How To Estimate Longleaf Seedling Mortality before Control Burns
Abstract:Brown-spot (Scirrhia acicola (Dearn.) Siggers) infection survey and crop-seedling selection methods can be correlated with seedling height estimates to determine potential mortality of longleaf pine (Pinus palustris Mill.) seedlings from control burns. Prescribed burns are suggested when the mean infection rate of crop seedlings reaches 20 percent. This assures minimal seedling loss from the burn.
