"Improving Irrigation Management Strategies in Ontario's Tree Nurseries" High mortality rates among most species of nursery trees after transplanting is generally blamed on water stress imposed by a variety of soil and other environmental conditions. This study examined the efficacy of a consortium of micorrhyzae, comprised of twenty species of both endo and ecto mycorrhyzae, to mitigate drought stress and reduce irrigation requirements when inoculated into the root zone of recently transplanted trees.

SES Seminar Series Guest Jim Roy

Dr Jim Roy Research Scientist with Environment and Climate Change Canada A search for phosphorus in groundwater discharging to Georgian Bay at Wasaga Beach  The nutrient phosphorus is a key contributor to eutrophication issues such as harmful algal blooms and low dissolved oxygen levels, which affect many Canadian freshwaters, including Georgian Bay. Groundwater inputs of phosphorus to freshwater lakes and streams have generally been assumed negligible, given its tendency to sorb to soils, or have been derived solely from the numbers of active cottage septic systems.
