Description: Means for brown-spot infection and 3- and 8-year height growth were determined in progeny testing of 540 parents in two Gulfport, Mississippi, plantiflgs and an Alexandria, Louisiana, planting, and of 60 of the parents at a subsequent Alexandria planting. To estimate growth at ages 5 and 8. both degree of brown-spot infection and height growth at age 2 were necessary independent variables, but for growth at age 8, 3rd-year height growth alone was sufficient. Families selected for rapid growth and brown-spot resistance in one location may not be the ones selected in another. Likewise, those selected in a brown-spot free area differed from those selected in an area where brown spot was prevalent. Implications for future breeding and seed orchard development are discussed.
Keywords: Pinus palustris, genotype x enviroment interactions, survival, growth, brown-spot needle blight
