Title: A New Sand-Culture Apparatus for Tree Nutrition Research

Author: Blackmon, B. G.; Linnartz, N. E.;

Date: 1970

Source: LSU Forestry Note AESRR-FN-92. Baton Rouge, LA: Louisiana State University & A & M College, School of Forestry and Wildlife Management. 4 p.

Publication Series: Miscellaneous Publication (MISC)

Description: Research in tree nutrition often necessitates the use of rather large-scale installations of sand-culture equipment. The apparatus described below was developed during the course of experiments at Louisiana State University and provided daily irrigation to 102 culture units of loblolly pine (Pinus taeda L.) for a period of 10 months. This apparatus is a modification of the one devised by Gauch and Wadleigh (1943), but some aspects of the system are thought to be original.

Keywords: sand culture, Gauch, Wadleigh
