Title: Effects of Irrigating Tree Seedlings with a Nutrient Solution

Author: Belanger, R. P.; Briscoe, C. B.;

Date: 1963

Source: Caribbean Forester 24(2):87-90

Publication Series: Scientific Journal (JRNL)

Description: Subsurface irrigation with nutrient solution was found to be biologically feasible under the conditions tested. Growth of seedlings was satisfactory, but not unusually good. On the bases of total height growth, and growth in fresh weight, the various fertilizers tested produced statistically different results. The species tested, members of three different families and native to three different continents, reacted similarly to the nutrient solutions tested. The highest root-to-shoot ratio obtained was in plain tap water.
