Interactions Between Vegetation Management and Fertilizer Applications

There has been little published research on early seedling fertilization in regeneration settings in the Pacific Northwest. Ongoing research by the Vegetation Management Research Co-op and published results from other investigators suggest three basic operational guidelines for seedling fertilization and weed control: (i) Fertilization in the absence of weed control on most sites will not result in a growth response. (ii) Where adequate soil moisture is available response to fertilization will be additive to that of vegetation management. (iii) How fertilizers are applied influences the success of a fertilization program.
