Physiological Testing of Plants as a Management Tool

Richard W. Tinus

pp: 225-230

Practical techniques have been developed for measuring root growth potential, cold hardiness, and other physiological attributes that are important to successful nursery practice and reestablishment of woody nursery stock. The techniques are described and their use in management illustrated. Woody plants are routinely grown in nurseries, shipped to a remote location, and then reestablished where they will remain for the rest of their life. Lifting, storage, shipping, and outplanting are traumatic events in the life of trees or shrubs; they must be in good physiological condition to withstand these treatments if they are to become reestablished and grow.
