Mulching experiments in tulips 1964-1971

Acta Horticulturae (47): 383-390

Mulching experiments in tulips 1964-1971

Three timings of mulch application (using chaff or sphagnum peat) were tested on tulips planted in beds. All the mulching treatments gave higher yields than the unmulched one. There were no large differences in yield between mulches applied in November and December, but mulches applied in January were less beneficial. Three levels of mulching (0.5, 1.0 and 1.5 kg/m2) were also tested.
