Fertilization in a mature Scots pine (Pinus sylvestris L.) stand—effects on fine roots

  author={Kerstin Ahlstr{\"o}m and Hans {\AA}. Persson and Inger B{\"o}rjesson},
  journal={Plant and Soil},
The effects of liquid and solid fertilizers on fine-root development were studied in a 130-year-old Scots pine (Pinus sylvestris L.) stand. Ingrowth cores,viz. initially root-free mesh bags with sieved mineral soil taken outside the plots and driven to a depth of 30 cm from the soil surface, were subsequently resampled and the amount of fine roots was estimated. The total accretion of both fine-root length and dry weight was comparatively high in the liquid fertilization plot. The most… CONTINUE READING
