Protea Nursery Production Trial

Subject:

Production trial facilitate propagation and nursery stock health

Abstract:

Seedling variation is commonly observed in commercial protea plantings throughout California. To select desirable characteristics and improve field stock, propagation by cuttings is be coming a necessity. This trial was established to facilitate the production of healthy nursery stock from cuttings for field transplanting. Death of container stock in the nursery has been a frequent problem, and growers are frustrated by the loss of young plants in the field. Loss of plants can usually be traced to three main problems: poor container media, pathogens (poor sanitation), and managerial problems related to irrigation and fertilization.
