Early Results of a Slash Pine Variety Trial
Abstract:Open-pollinated seed from 15 slash pine seed orchards were tested at two locations, the flatwoods and lower piedmont, in Georgia. After five years in the field, there were significant differences in fusiform rust (Cronartium quercum (Berk.) Miyabe ex Shirai f. sp. fusiforme) infection at both locations, and in average total height in the lower piedmont. There was no significant difference for survival at either location. In general, good gains have been made for growth rate but some of these gains are offset by increased damage caused by fusiform rust.
