    Description

    Direct-seeded Nuttall oak (Quercus nutiallii Palmer) and water oak (Q. nigra L.) acorns on an old-field site of Sharkey clay soil typifying marginal crop production sites gave a first-year seedling percentage of 55 and 49, respectively. Seedling percentage of acorns sown at a 2-inch depth was greater than that of acorns sown at 4- and 6-inch depths (63 vs. 47 and 46 percent).
