results of an investigation of the most suitable species for biomass production could make a significant contribution to science and practice ( Hadrović et al., 2019 ). In addition, low nitrogen (N) availability is a major limiting factor for plant growth

losses from production nurseries are few, and the results are not always consistent. A survey of container nurseries in the eastern United States found that runoff leaving nurseries exceeded 10 mg·L −1 nitrate–nitrogen (NO 3 –N), although some nurseries
