Moisture storage capacity and postplanting patterns of moisture movement from seedling containers

Moisture storage capacity and postplanting patterns of moisture movement from seedling containers

Canad. J. For. Res, 1: 3, 151-8

A study of the movement of water from (a) Jiffy peat pots (with permeable walls), (b) Conwed tubes (partially permeable walls), and (c) Ontario tubes (impermeable walls), filled with peat or a mixture of peat and mineral soil, into sand and loam soils obtained from planting sites. Irrespective of container type, there was rapid outward movement of 15-39% of the moisture initially stored in the containers to the surrounding soil within a few days of planting.
