( Rubinstein, 2015 ; Whitaker et al., 2014 ). The most commonly used transplant type in Florida is bare root ( Bish and Cantliffe, 2002 ; Bish et al., 1997 ). Bare-root leaf-on transplants promote earlier yield compared with those with leaves removed, but

Newly transplanted trees and shrubs in urban areas frequently encounter compacted soils with disturbed horizons, competition for space with underground infrastructure, pollution, excessive heat, high foot traffic, and are often neglected in terms of

Field-grown (FG) trees lose a significant portion of their root system ( Gilman and Beeson, 1996 ) and when transplanted are subjected to great stress. Water deficits often develop ( Montague et al., 2000a ) because the natural balance between

Vegetable transplants for consumer purchase represent an important segment of the U.S. bedding plant industry. In 2008, the wholesale value of this group was ≈$92 million for commercial floriculture growers in surveyed states that had $100,000 or

Decision-making in regard to scheduling transplanting date is one of the least studied aspects of sweetpotato production. It is well documented that transplanting dates can potentially influence storage root yield ( Edmond and Ammerman, 1971

Moisture loss from bare-root plants during postharvest handling and storage can have a significant impact on plant survival and growth during establishment. Three film-forming antitranspirants and hot wax were applied to bare-root roses (Rosa) packaged after harvesting from the field and before 13 weeks of –2C storage to determine effects on vegetative growth and flowering. Subsequently, during 15 days under simulated display conditions (22 to 32C), plants treated with hot wax resumed growth at the fastest rate compared to control or antitranspirant treatments. Hot-wax-treated plants remained at an advanced phenological stage compared to the other plants for 2 weeks following transplanting in the field. For the remaining 10 weeks of the experiment, vegetative growth and flowering development were similar for all treatments. More than 60% of the plants treated with hot wax developed moderate to severe cane damage and plant dieback. Less than 20% of the antitranspirant-treated plants were damaged. A laboratory experiment confirmed that hot wax treatment was most effective; it reduced weight loss from stem sections by 85% relative to the control. The other antitranspirants reduced weight loss by 27%.
