Fertilizer trials for bareroot nurseries in North America
AbstractIn North America, most tree nursery nutrition publications during the past two decades involved either container-grown stock or stock grown in greenhouses. In contrast, most bareroot nursery fertility trials in North America were published during the last century. As a result, some bareroot fertilization recommendations have remained the same since 1980 and some practices continue to be based on myths and assumptions. The bareroot nursery industry in the USA might benefit if the next generation of graduate students will consider testing old and new theories about nursery fertilization. Hopefully, they will discover new facts so that future fertilization regimes will be based on science. This paper provides various fertilizer trials that should be established in bareroot nurseries.
