New ideas in fall planting

Tests of early fall planting of seedlings from Lava Nursery, Oregon, showed average survival rates better than those for spring planting. For successful early fall plantings, seedlings must not be lifted until soil moisture on the outplanting site is at acceptable risk levels. It is extremely important that seedlings be in perfect physiological synchronization with the planting site environment. A unified approach between the nursery and outplanting crews is necessary for successful early fall outplanting.
