Healthy Substrates Need Physicals Too
Research is needed to evaluate changes in container substrates from initial physical properties to changes in air and water characteristics after a production cycle. Expand
Reduced Leaching Fractions Improve Irrigation Use Efficiency and Nutrient Efficacy
Abstract An experiment with two leaching fractions (LF = volume of water leached ÷ volume of water applied) and two fertilizer rates was conducted to evaluate the effects of reduced irrigation volumeExpand
Effects of soil calcium and pH on seed germination and subsequent growth of Large crabgrass (Digitaria sanguinalis)
By raising soil pH levels, the growth of large crabgrass and its ability to compete with turfgrass may be reduced and raising exchangeable Ca does not appear to be an effective management tool for control of this weed species. Expand
Phosphorus Rate, Leaching Fraction, and Substrate Influence on Influent Quantity, Effluent Nutrient Content, and Response of a Containerized Woody Ornamental Crop
This study was conducted to determine if production factors could be altered to increase water and phosphorus uptake efficiency (PUE) without sacrificing plant growth. Expand
Changes in Physical and Chemical Properties of a Loamy Sand Soil When Amended With Composted Poultry Litter
Abstract The objective of this study was to determine the effects of composted poultry litter (CPL) on the physical and chemical properties of a loamy sand soil. To accomplish this, a loamy sand so...
Cyclic Irrigation Increases Irrigation Application Efficiency and Decreases Ammonium Losses
Abstract Cyclic irrigation using pressure compensated drip emitters was evaluated for irrigation application efficiency, nutrient efficacy, and plant growth. The experiment, a RCBD with fourExpand
Day/Night Temperature Affects Growth and Photosynthesis of Cultivated Salvia Taxa
Taxa of European origin displayed broader tolerance to high day temperatures with the lowest relative reduction in growth and net photosynthesis (Pn) occurring at DTs 30 8C or greater compared with those native to North and South America. Expand
