Title: Fungicides improve field performance of stored loblolly and longleaf pine seedlings

Author: Brissette, John C.;

Date: 1996

Source: Southern Journal of Applied Forestry. 1: 5-9.

Publication Series: Scientific Journal (JRNL)

Description: Seedlings of loblolly and longleaf pine lifted in December, January, and February were treated with either benomyl or ridomil before cold storage. Along with an untreated control, they were planted after cold storage of less than 1 wk, 3 wk, and 6 wk. Survival was measured in mid-June after planting, and after 1 and 4 yr in the field. Total height was measured after 4 yr. The fungicide application increased survival of both species lifted in December or February and was beneficial to longleaf pine seedlings regardless of storage duration. Fungicide-treated longleaf pine seedlings had greater mean 4 yr height than the controls, but fungicides did not affect the height of loblolly pine.
