Carolyn's program investigates the influence of nutrition and root- associated organisms on root growth, productivity, and quality of nursery crops. This research has three primary objectives: 1) Optimize nutrient management for sustainable nursery and specialty crop systems, 2) Develop improved cold tolerance of nursery crops through nutrient management, and 3) Investigate physiological roles of mycorrhizal fungi on plant growth, nutrient use efficiency, and end-product quality
