Effect of irregularity in fertilizer application during mechanized thinning on the increment of Norway spruce



Effect of irregularity in fertilizer application during mechanized thinning on the increment of Norway spruce



Lesovodstvo, Lesnye Kul' tury i Pochvovedenie: 57-63



An analysis is made of the irregularity of fertilizer distribution by a tractor-mounted MVU-1 machine which blows the granular or powdery material for up to 20-25 m from the line of travel. The machine was working from parallel skidding trails in a 70-year-old stand of Picea abies following a thinning. Data are presented on the increment response, which was greatest in the zone of greatest fertilizer concentration (6-15 m from the machine) and least in the zone adjacent to the trail (0-6 m).
