Improving Seed-Use Efficiency and Seedling Quality Through the Use of History Plots

History plots are permanent plots established at the time of sowing that are monitored throughout the nursery rotation. In the recommended procedure, the actual seed sowing density is measured immediately, which supplies information on seed drill efficiency and permits accurate monitoring of seed and seedling losses during the entire nursery period. Information from history plots has many different applications in nursery management, such as monitoring seed-use efficiency, producing seedling growth curves, scheduling or modification of cultural practices, and nursery problem -solving.
