Description: The susceptibility (percentage of seedlings infected) of Pinus taeda seedlings to infection by Cronartium quercuum f. sp. fusiforme was not affected by fertilization with calcium, magnesium, or aluminum-iron. Fertilization with Al as Al2(SO4)2,and Fe as FeCl2, however, significantly reduced seedling height growth during the first 8 weeks after seedling emergence and increased numbers of fusiform rust galls per unit of seedling height present at time of inoculation.
Keywords: Pinus taeda, Cronartium quercuum, rust testing, disease resistance.
