  4. The Application of Inorganic Fertilisers to Conditioned <em>Pinus radiata</em> Prior to Lifting as a Means of Improving Root Growth Capacity

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Forestry Journal
    A modified root growth capacity technique was used to evaluate the effect of the application of different types and quantities of fertilisers on the root growth capacity (RGC) of conditioned Pinus radiata seedlings. The experiment indicates that 0,05 g N...
