Organic Matter: Short-Term Benefits and Long-Term Opportunities
Mexal, John G. ; Fisher, James T.

It is possible to increase the stable fraction of OM in nursery soils and, potentially, to improve seedling growth and yield. However, it will be necessary to apply amendments more frequently than conventionally done.
