Bedding Improves Yellow-Poplar Growth on Fragipan Soils JOHN K. FRANCIS SUMMARY Yellow-poplar can be grown on soils that have a shallow fragipan -but unless such sites are bedded, growth is likely to be extremely poor. In a Tennessee study, bedding increased height of planted yellow-poplar over 5 years, but fertilizer did not. Because ofCited by: 1. Bedding improves yellow-poplar growth on fragipan soils / John K.

Soil Changes and Tree Seedling Response Associated with Site Preparation in Northern Idaho. soils increased yellow-poplar Bedding improves yellow-poplar growth on fragipan.   Bedding improves the growth of hardwood seedlings including beech (Fagus sylvatica L.) on loamy soils in southern Sweden (Gemmel et al., ) and increases the height growth of yellow poplar (Liriodendron tulipifera L.) on soils with fragipans in Tennessee (Francis, ).Cited by:

A replicated split-plot design experiment to evaluate the effects of three site preparation methods (disking, bedding, and subsoiling plus bedding) on survival and growth of three oak species (cherrybark, Quercus pagoda Raf.; Shumard, Quercus shumardii Buckl.; and Nuttall, Quercus texana Buckl.) was established in in Madison County, : J.

The term fragipan has been discussed in Soil Taxonomy (Soil Survey Staff, ) and in the legend to the Soil Map of the World (FAO, a). Two soils with fragipans in Canada have been well documented by Wang et al. () and the subject of fragipans has Cited by: 8. Black walnut grows best on moist, deep, fertile, well-drained, loamy soils, although it also grows quite well in silty clay loam soils or in good agricultural soils without a fragipan (Williams.

In practice, quick-bedding has the best results in lighter, easy-working soils, especially with higher beds. Other bedding methods make bed shaping and soil conditioning easier, require less tractor power and/or reduce spring tillage work, notably in heavier Size: KB. If you plan to grow plants that prefer acidic soil, you can add sulfur. For plants that prefer alkaline soil, add dolomite or wood ashes. To improve drainage, mix in gypsum, shredded bark or woodchips. Essentially, create the ideal soil for the plants you intend to grow. This will also be the best raised soil mix you can possibly use. Site indices for yellow poplar and northern red oak are 90 respectively, with annual growth of approximately and *, respectively. *-Annual growth is based on the NRCS soil series yields, Table 3. These values represent even-aged stands at . III. High quality bedding plants have flowers just ready to open, numerous breaks, and are com-pact.

As with other floriculture crops, watering is the most important cultural practice in growing bedding plants. Size: KB.
