    Description

    Several insect, weed, and disease pests are discussed that have been observed affecting container-grown longleaf pine (Pinus palustris Mill.) seedlings. The available tools to minimize the effects of these pests are limited to a few select insecticides, herbicides, and fungicides. Extreme care should be taken to ensure that the chemical chosen is used within the recommended guidelines and used with proper equipment. Accurate identification of the pest is important to ensure that the correct remedy is chosen. When growing longleaf pine seedlings in containers, pest prevention is cheaper than crisis intervention. Care should be taken to use the best available clean seed and potting media, to clean containers between crops, and to prevent stress by using the right amount of irrigation water. A list of pesticides is given to aid the grower in selecting the proper tool for pest problems.
