DescriptionThe nutrient cycle, which includes the input of nutrients to the site, their losses, and their movement from one soil or vegetation component to another, can be modified by site preparation, rotation length, harvest system, fertilization, and fire, and by using soil-improving plants. Included is a report on how alternative procedures affect site nutrients, and provides general principles that can be followed to enhance long-term productivity of loblolly pine.
