Several thousand milkweed plants were transplanted to the field to investigate the effects of coal dust on planting densities. Three separate planting densities, 6, 8, and 12 were examined. At each density, 16 plots (10 by 10, consisting of 4 rows spaced 30 inches) were tested for various rates of applied coal dust. Transplants were planted to the field on 5/30-5/31/2001. Perennial rye and fescue grass was planted between the plots.
