Mark record


The Interprovincial Forest Fertilization Program comprises 81 standardized experiments established by the provincial forest services of New Brunswick, Quebec, Ontario, Manitoba, and Alberta, and by the Canadian Forestry Service inthe provinces of Nova Scotia and Saskatchewan. Seventy-three of the experiments were remeasured after 10 growing seasons. The field trials were designed to test the effect of nitrogen when applied as unrea at the rates of 112 and 224 kg/ha, and the effects of combined nitrogen, phosphorus, and/or potassium additions on the growth of pole-size and semimature conifer stands.
