Lasting, effective solutions to nitrogen (N) loss from container nurseries must
address layers of complexity ranging in scale from whole system nursery management
to gene expression. Group-based On-site Active Learning (GOAL) was developed to
aid nursery managers and related stakeholders (e.g. neighbors, policy makers,
regulating agencies, researchers) in developing a...
As ornamental container nurseries face diminishing water allocations, many are looking to automated irrigation solutions to increase their water application efficiency. This thesis presents the findings of a study conducted at a commercial container nursery to determine 1) whether a capacitance or load cell sensor was better suited for monitoring...
The objectives of this study were to establish a suitable method
for the measurement of the root cation-exchange capacity of conifer
seedlings, and to examine possible influences of this root characteristic
on nutrient absorption from a Bellpine soil under greenhouse
The exchange sites of fresh, excised roots were saturated...
An investigation of the effects of soil and foliar applications
of boron and of time of foliar application of boron on
growth, yield, and boron content of bush snap beans was made
during the 1962 growing season. This study was conducted at two
locations: Corvallis and Aurora, Oregon.
