Title: Summer Fallowinng Improves Survival and Growth of Cottonwood on Old Fields

Author: Baker, James B.; Blackmon, B. G.;

Date: 1973

Source: Research Note SO-RN-149. New Orleans, LA: USDA-Forest Service, Southern Forest Experiment Station. 3 p.

Publication Series: Research Note (RN)

Description: Fallowing an old-field site during the summer prior to planting and applying a herbicide in September improved survival and growth of eastern cottonwood cuttings. Summer fallowing without applying herbicide also improved height growth of cottonwood through age 2. Deep plowing and cover cropping, alone or in combination, did not influence growth or survival during the first year after planting.

Keywords: Populus deltoides, site preparation, Johnson grass
