Abstract:

Seed orchard treatments involving high levels of nitrogen fertilization decreased percent filled seed and seed germination in four open-pollinated families from a longleaf pine (Pinus palustris Mill.) seed orchard. While fertilizer increased seed weights, it was of no apparent benefit to seedling size 5½ months after sowing.
