Use of Vector Diagrams for the Interpretation of Nutrient Response in Conifer Seedlings
Todd Birchler, Diane L. Haase and Robin Rose
1996: New England, CT
Analysis of seedling nutrient response using vector diagrams enables comparisons of nutrient concentration, nutrient content, and plant growth to be made simultaneously in an integrated graphic format (Haase and Rose 1995). Vector analysis is very useful for examining plant responses to various nursery cultural and silvicultural treatments, and because it is comparative, interpretations may be made independent of predetermined critical levels or ratios. In a nursery setting, vector analysis enables the easy detection of nutrient imbalances, nutrient interactions, and dilution effects.
