Abstract

Abstract

Slash pine (Pinus elliottii var. elliottii Engelm.) were fertilized at time of planting with 22 and 88 kg N/ha in the form of urea, urea formaldehyde, sulfur-coated urea, ammonium sulfate, and sodium nitrate. Stands of small, pole-sized slash pine were fertilized with 55 and 220 kg N/ha in the form of urea, urea formaldehyde, ammonium sulfate, and ammonium nitrate. The stands were located on a spectrum of lower coastal plain soils. Soil solution nitrate and ammonium concentrations were monitored at 60-cm depths in the young stands. All treatments except urea formaldehyde caused NH4-N concentration to increase temporarily. Nitrate nitrogen concentration was temporarily increased by both urea and sodium nitrate treatments. After 6 and 10 years of growth, respectively, one-half of the stands in each age class had grown significantly better when nitrogen was added. No significant difference in the response to various nitrogen sources occurred.
