Effects of certain soil treatments on the development of loblolly pine nursery stock



Effects of certain soil treatments on the development of loblolly pine nursery stock



Jour Forest 39(11): 918-921



The experiment was carried out on 1-yr.-old Pinus taeda seedlings at a forest tree nursery in the sand-hill region near Hoffman, N. C. The addition of a heavier textured soil or of organic matter improved the physical characteristics of the sandy soil, stimulated seedling growth, reduced the root-shoot ratio by wt. and stimulated the development of a large number of small branching rootlets. Conc, fertilizers high in P tended to increase root-shoot ratios, to leach through sandy soils rapidly, and were most efficient when applied a few weeks after the germination of seeds. Under the latter treatment, however, the roots tended to be sparsely branched and were more highly lignified than those from the heavier soil or organic treatments.
