    Description

    A multi-channel field laboratory was designed and constructed by the University of Missouri Center for Agroforestry at the Horticulture and Agroforestry Research Center to assess the flood tolerance of forages and hardwood seedlings. This facility located in the Missouri River floodplain consists of twelve 6-m wide x 180-m long channels that had minimal disturbance to the old-field riparian soils when soil from the retention pond was used to construct the berms. Each channel can be independently flooded for variable duration to specific depths with either flowing or stagnant water. For this study, we used nine channels arranged in a randomized complete block design of three blocks of three treatments each.
