Improving the survival and growth of conifer seedlings in a changing climate: Fo103-3/60-2016E-PDF

"Changes in climate are affecting the growth of trees. Warmer temperatures earlier in spring and later in autumn are lengthening the growing season. However, extreme weather events such as droughts are also increasing in frequency and duration. As our climate becomes drier, nurseries are looking for ways to improve seedling quality to increase survival after planting. An innovative approach is using a commercially available seaweed extract to improve root growth in conifer seedlings. Greater root growth may provide seedlings with a competitive advantage as we move toward a drier climate"--P. [1].
