Growing Healthy Seedlings

This book provides an illustrated guide to the identification and management of fungi, insects, and abiotic conditions that cause problems in Northwest bareroot conifer nurseries. A key to nursery pests offiers initial guidance in identification. Seperate chapters address individual pests with details on recognition, damage cycle, and management practices to reduce losses. A final chapter discusses the intergration of pest-managment practices into the entire nursery operation. Tables of pesticides and pests controlled, a checklist of control activities keyed to the seedling growth cycle, and a glossary of terms conclude the book.
