( 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

Transplant survivability is important in achieving consistent economic yields in sweetpotatoes. We are conducting a series of studies that investigate the role of transplant quality in sweetpotato yield. In 2004, in addition to investigating the role of transplant diameter, we also investigated the influence of transplant water (about 6 oz per hill) on stand and yield. Even though rainfall events were regular and mean rainfall during the growing season was above average for the year, there was a significant increase in US#1 yield (23.57%) among plots derived from thick transplants (≥0.25 inches, no transplant water) versus thin transplants (no transplant water). There was a 44.16% increase in US #1 yield among plots planted with thick transplants vs. plots with thin transplants (with transplant water). In 2005, there was also a significant difference (14%) in US #1 yield between plots planted to thick and thin transplants, respectively. This indicates the possible role of transplant thickness on stand and yield. We also investigated the relationship between root spacing during bedding on cutting diameter as well as a farmer's practice of planting two transplants per hill. In both preliminary tests, no differences among the treatments were observed. Additional studies are planned to investigate the possible use of chemical-based treatments to enhance transplant thickness and survivability.
