Fall fertilization resulted in substantial overwinter dry weight gains and increases in nutrient content and concentrations in one-year-old longleaf pine (Pinus palustris Mill.) nursery stock. Recovery of applied nutrients in the seedling crop was greatest for N. In the field, height growth and the rate of emergence from the grass stage were improved as a result of fall fertilization in the nursery. This practice thus offers a means of increasing seedling size and nutrient reserves prior to out-planting on the relatively infertile sites where seedlings are normally established.
