The effect of fertilizers on the vital functions of spruce in a blueberry spruce forest

The effect of fertilizers on physiological processes intensity and spruce growth in a 120 year-old blueberry spruce forest of the IVth quality grade has been studied. The study describes the change in the root respiration intensity, photosynthesis, transpiration, concentration of photosynthetic pigments, moisture content of spruce needles and their biometric parameters under the influence of mineral fertilizers (urea, double superphosphate and potassium chloride).

Influence of thinning out and nitrogen fertilizers on photosynthesis and growth of spruce in birch forests of myrtillus type

The effect of different nitrogen doses and cutting on the rate of physiological and growth processes has been studied in birch forests of blueberry type in taiga zone. It has been established that nitrogen has got little effect on the vitality and growth of spruce in mature birch forests because of the light lack. In thinned stands the nitrogen increases the rate of photosynthesis twofold, activates processes associated with the accumulation and subsequent outflow of carbon metabolites from the needles. The result of this nitrogen action is the intensification of growth processes.
