Repetitive Reaction and Restitution (R3) Induction of Drought Hardiness in Conifer Container Seedlings

Hodgson, J. IN: National Proceedings: Forest and Conservation Nursery Associations — 2010, p. 83-86. Riley, L.E., Haase, D.L. and Pinto, J.R. technical coordinators. USDA Forest Service, Rocky Mountain Research Station, Proceedings RMRS-P-65. 2011.

Planting failures are often attributed to unexpectedly harsh conditions after planting. Characterization of soil water at the planting site, along with associated influences of site preparation and soil texture, is recommended. Additionally, tree planting technique and seedling biology should be targeted to site conditions. A nursery regime for induction of drought hardening is proposed for hot-lift summer- and fall-planted container conifers.
