Improving dryland seedling recruitment using fungicide seed coatings

Benjamin Hoose, Brad Geary, William Richardson, Steven Petersen & Matthew Madsen
The success of seed-based restoration in dryland regions of the world is often low or sporadic, with most mortality occurring between germination and emergence. Fungal pathogenesis is one process that may reduce seedling emergence and limit restoration success. Our objective was to determine whether fungicide seed coatings constitute an economically viable strategy for increasing emergence by reducing fungal pathogenesis and mortality. We performed an experiment across two sites and three years, using bluebunch wheatgrass (Pseudoroegneria...
