Fixing the Edsel : Can Bareroot Stock Quality Be Improved?

Bareroot stock quality and subsequent field survival and growth can be improved by: (1) growing seedlings at wider spacings which results in increased dry weight, lower shoot/root ratio, larger root collar diameter and in some cases increased root growth capacity (RGC); (2) ? root culturing (undercutting or root wrenching) which increases RGC; and (3) nutrient loading with fall applications of nitrogen fertilizers which increases both RGC and field growth.
