Project Information

Summary:

Note to readers, attached is the complete final report for FNE02-426.

By the end of June there were clear differences in the plant growth on the different temperature treatments. The plants with only the ground cover showing on the shoulders either died or for a few, stopped growing. The aluminum had the largest growth, followed by white and then the straw treatment. The Everest and Sweet Charlie failed to produce the runners expected to fill the row. Sweet Charlie eventually did start to run but Everest never did put out any runners. Day neutrals are know for not running, but it was believed that being tc plants they would over come this problem. (Will discuss why this occurred in the final report.)
