Title: Summer Fallowing Helps Establish Cottonwood on Old Fields

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

Date: 1973

Publication Series: Paper (invited, offered, keynote)

Description: Cottonwood is an ideal crop for many old fields in the Mississippi Delta, but getting the trees established on these sites has proved difficult. Surface soils are often compacted and depleted of nutrients, and grasses and other herbaceous vegetation compete strongly with the young trees for moisture and nutrients. Fallowing in the summer before cottonwood cuttings are planted may be the answer for improving tree survival and growth.
