The Effectiveness of Superabsorbent Materials for Maintaining Southern Pine Seedlings During Cold Storage

First-year survival and growth of loblolly pine (Pinus taeda L.) seedlings packaged with seven different superabsorbent polymers, and planted within 48 hours or after 30 days cold storage, were evaluated in Mississippi and Louisiana. Differences in survival were significant at the Mississippi site with several superabsorbent treatments being superior to the clay slurry control. Total height differences among treatments were not significant at either the Mississippi or Louisiana site.
