Stem Water Potential
Certifying a Mycorrhizal soil amendment
Developing a nursery transplanting protocol
By Prof. Mike Dixon & Alec Downey
- To test claims a Mychorizal soil amendment can reduce water stress of ornamental nursery grown trees.
- Develop a plant water stress monitoring protocol by continuously monitoring plant water potential (Ψ) to better manage water requirements of nursery grown ornamental trees during transplanting , to avoid over watering and under watering during a significant, induced stress and achieve better survival rates of transplanted trees.
