This study started in February of 2013 on approximately 30 acres in Hancock County, Mississippi. ArborGen improved second generation Loblolly Pine (Pinus taeda) seedlings were planted at the rate of 550 seedlings per acre. The seedlings were treated with a solution of water and varying amounts (2 oz. to 14 oz.) of SumaGrow by briefly placing the seedling roots in the solution, a “root dip.”
The treated seedlings are growing approximately one extra foot per year versus the control.
Below are progress reports in chronological order:
