Nursery Practices, Seedling Sizes, and Field Performance
Stein, William I.
1988: Vernon, CAN

The study involved seven sources of stock produced in three different nurseries and field plantings made over 3 years on 28 sites in southwestern Oregon. Seedbed density had more effect on the size of seedlings produced and on subsequent 4 year field survival and growth than did variations in irrigation frequency or undercutting and wrenching.
