Effects of a Fertilizer Solution and Gibberellic Acid on Loblolly Pine Seedlings

Aqueous solutions containing nutrients are applied at time of transplanting certain field crops. Many of the solutions produce an initially favorable environment in the root zone by providing additional moisture and nutrients. Similar applications in field trans-planting of pine seedlings may increase survival, as well as stimulate growth. Austin and Strand4 summarize trials of fertilizer applications on planted seedlings, and investigated the use of slowly soluble fertilizers in forest plantings in the Pacific Northwest. Results were extremely variable and were influenced by kind of fertilization, site conditions, species, and climatic conditions.
