Abstract

MALAVASI, Ubirajara Contro  and  MALAVASI, Marlene de Matos. EFFECT OF CONTAINER VOLUME ON INITIAL GROWTH OF Cordia trichotoma (Vell.) Arrab. Ex Steud AND Jacaranda micranta Cham. SEEDLINGS. Ciênc. Florest. [online]. 2006, vol.16, n.1, pp.11-16. ISSN 0103-9954.  http://dx.doi.org/10.5902/198050981883.

This study compared the effects of container volume upon initial seedling growth of Cordia trichotoma (Vell.) Arrab. ex Steud and Jacaranda micranta Cham. 180 days after the planting. The plastic containers used were filled with commercial nursery substrate and displayed volumes of 55, 120, 180 and 300 cm3. No mortality was recorded among seedlings of all container sizes. There were no statistical differences in respect of height and stem diameter from seedlings cultivated in 120, 180 and 300 cm3 containers 180 days after the planting date.

Keywords : seedlings; containers; development; root restriction.
