Establishment and growth of grass species transplanted on dredged material.
MetadataShow full item record
Two fertilizer and control treatments were applied to transplant plots of Cynodon dactylon, Panicum amarum, and Andropogon perangustatus on sandy dredged material, Bolivar Peninsula, TX. Andropogon perangustatus transplant survival was low in both summer and winter plantings. Survival and growth of Cynodon dactylon and Panicum amarum, which were planted only in the summer, were good. Low and wet elevations were detrimental to all 3 species. In contrast, growth was satisfactory at high elevations. Biomass production of Cynodon dactylon and Panicum amarum increased with 1st and 2nd year application of fertilizer.
