About this book

In Britain the use of fertilisers has greatly increased the productivity of forests growing on nutrient-poor soils. This Bulletin condenses relevant research into practical guidance for the forest manager. The symptons of the most common nutrient deficiences are described as well as the methods of treatment. Fertiliser regimes are listed and other methods of relieving or preventing nutrient deficiency are discussed. It is intended to supplement field experience and assist planning at both regional and local levels.


Contents

Summary (English, French and German); recognition of nutrient deficiency; when to apply fertiliser; where to apply fertiliser; types and rates of fertilisers; methods of application; economic appraisal; environmental effects; effects of wood quality; appendices.
