An approach to fertilization of bareroot conifer seedlings

"Although many techniques of soil and plant analysis are available and can be used to forecast growth and prescribe better soil management practices, the growth response of the crop itself is the only satisfactory criterion of the efficiency of any treatment. Ultimately, of course, the performance of the tree in the forest is the fundamental measure of the degree to which soil management has been successful". l Each Nursery, because of the differences and complexities of the soils and the interactions of soil with water, climate, fertilizer and species of seedling grown, must determine what, how much and when, and how the fertilizer should be applied.
