Technical Publications

A portion of the NC State 2012 Agricultural Chemicals Manual. Ornamental on page 48.
File PDF document Ivy et al. 2002. Date of potting and fertilization affects plant growth, mineral nutrient content, and substrate electrical conductivity.
Promising results show that potting in fall and applying the full rate of CRF can increase growth by matching nutrient release in spring with CRF release. also, reduces N loss since plant is taking up N at the time of peak release. R.L. Ivy, T.E. Bilderback, and S.L. Warren, Depart. of Horticultural Science, NC State University, Raleigh, NC 2769-7609
File PDF document Mikkelson et al 1994 N leaching and plant uptake from controlled-release fertilizers.
A comparison between coating types and release rates for various CRFs and soluble control. Highlights different scenarios for nutrient release based on plant uptake. RL Mikkelsen, HM Williams and AD Behel, Jr. Fertilizer Research 37: 43-50, 1994.
File PDF document Lea-Cox et al 2001 A Water and Nutrient Management Planning Process for Container Nursery and Greenhouse Production Systems in Maryland
A nutrient management planning strategy has been identified that will provide an assessment of nutrient loss potential from a wide variety of production scenarios, identify the specific factors that contribute most to nutrient leaching and runoff, and enable targeted best management practices to be implemented to reduce the risk of nutrient run-off. JD Lea-Cox, DS Ross and KM Teffeau. J. Environ. Hort. 19(4):230-236 2001.
