A gravimetric substrate moisture monitoring system was used to control irrigation frequency and volume within a narrow range of substrate moisture contents to study the effects of reduced irrigation…
Effect of Bioplex™ on Transplant Success of Non-Dormant Red Oak (Quercus rubra L.)
Root pruning significantly reduced whole plant transpiration, compared to non-root-pruned seedlings, and had a greater effect on transpiration than any Bioplex™ treatment.
Monitoring Effective Container Capacity: A Method for Reducing Over-Irrigation in Container Production Systems
Abstract A gravimetric substrate moisture monitoring system was used to control irrigation frequency and volume within a narrow range of substrate moisture contents to study the effects of reduced…
Effect of Bioplex™ on Transplant Success and Recovery of Summer-dug Goldenraintree
Although Bioplex™ reduced transpiration rates three to five days after application in non-dug trees, there were no long-term benefits to survival or re-gr owth to summer transplanted trees.
Taxodium Growth Under Different Substrate Moisture Levels
The Effects of Near-zero Leachate Irrigation on Growth and Water Use Efficiency and Nutrient Uptake of Container Grown Baldcypress (Taxodium distichum (L.) Rich.) Plants
Abstract Fertilization and irrigation practices affect water-and nutrient use-efficiencies in container-produced nursery crops. This study was conducted to determine if gravimetric monitoring of a…
