Practices to promote tree root growth have been sought in arboriculture for many years, especially as a treatment for trees that are stressed or in decline. Tree fertilization is a common practice in arboriculture. A few research reports have shown that nitrogen fertilization can increase fine-root density in localized areas of soil where the fertilizer has been applied, but the effect on the whole root system has not been investigated. Research has reported fine-root stimulating effects from…

Formation and functioning of source-sink relation system of oil poppy under treptolem treatment towards crop productivity
TLDR
It is proved that treptolem application during the budding period on the poppy seed leads to increase the yield of crop due to optimized morphological structure of plant, the mesosurface structure of leaf; it is also increased the potential trapping due to the laying and formation of a greater number of fruits.

Tree root system enhancement with paclobutrazol
TLDR
Elongation and dry weight of first year regenerated roots of newly planted black maple trees (Acer nigrum) were increased by PBZ treatment, which could result in faster establishment of transplanted trees.
EFFECTS OF SOIL pH, ROOT DENSITY, AND TREE GROWTH REGULATOR TREATMENTS ON PIN OAK CHLOROSIS
Chlorosis of pin oaks (Quercus palustris) is a common problem in developed landscapes (Wysong et al. 1989; University of Illinois Extension 1996). Symptoms may include yellowish green to golden
Root growth response to fertilizers.
TLDR
Investigation of the potential root damage caused by this method of application, and the potential stimulating effects of fertilizer nutrients on root development, near honeylocust and pin oak trees found no evidence of phytotoxicity from the concentrated source of fertilizer salts.
Nitrogen Uptake and Leaching under Annual Bluegrass Ecotypes and Bentgrass Species: A Lysimeter Experiment
TLDR
Breeding programs and management practices to improve turfgrass root development appear to be critical to reduce fertilizer N leaching under sand-based putting greens.

Sitka spruce seedlings were grown with divided root systems in sand culture and the applica tion of N, P, and K was varied while maintaining a complete supply of other nutrients. There was a
Effects of Demand-driven Fertilization on Nutrient Use, Root:Plant Ratio and Field Performance of Betula pendula and Picea abies
TLDR
The use of fertilizers can be considerably reduced in Swedish forest nurseries, and the root:plant ratio may be important for growth performance, provided that nutrient status is not at a growth-limiting level.
Root growth characteristics, biomass and nutrient dynamics of seedlings of two larch species raised under different fertilization regimes

Nitrogen fertilizer form and associated nitrate leaching from cool-season lawn turf.
TLDR
Results indicate that NO(3)-N leaching losses from lawn turf in southern New England occur primarily during the late fall through the early spring, and lawn turf fertilizers should be formulated with a larger percentage of slow-release N than soluble N.
The responses of plants to non-uniform supplies of nutrients.

TLDR
The growth of whole plants was least affected by a non-uniform supply of nutrients, and least variable, when comparing these attributes; this is circumstantial evidence that some of the responses did compensate partially for non- uniform supplies of nutrients.
