In Methods of Rapid, Early Selection of Poplar Clones for Maximum Yield Potential: A Manual of Procedures, US Department of Agriculture, Forest Service, North Central Forest Experiment Station, St Paul, MN, General Technical Report NC, , pp. Cited by: potential of fast-growing and short-rotation hybrid poplar clones for high-yield fiber production a couple of decades ago, the Quebec Ministry of Natural Resources has set up an active poplar breeding program. Over the years, a number of poplar clonal and progeny trials have been established. The. Selection of Poplar Hybrid Clones (Populus ssp.) from Backcrossed Progenies of the Aigeiros Section for Industrial Purpose Article (PDF Available) in Silvae Genetica 62(1) . B12 is an extremely branchy tree relative to the other clones, which probably contributed to the difficulty of ranking it correctly. To evaluate the potential of using second year height for early selection, second-year height rankings are overlaid on third-year volume production rankings in Fig. by: 9.

The aims of this study were to describe the genetic variation and production potential among 36 poplar clones grown in a rotation of 5–13 years and evaluate the different species and hybrid group's potential for use in Northern Europe and comparable growth conditions.   Poplar clone 84K (Populus alba × Populus glandulosa) is now commonly used for gene functional studies because it is easier to obtain transgenic plants through Agrobacterium tumefaciens-mediated leaf discs [30,31,32]. The regeneration of transgenic plants involves callus induction, shoot differentiation, seedling culture and plant by: 2. Yield tables for poplar clones Robusta and I were constructed in Slovakia in the years to Mathematical models of primary stand quantities were derived from domestic empirical.   Breeders could make more rapid progress toward the development of VW resistant clones if they had an effective early generation selection strategy. The purpose of this study was to determine whether selection for VW resistance could be carried out in Cited by: 7.

Woody cuttings of two hybrid poplar clones (Populus deltoides × maximowiczii—clone Eridano and P. × euramericana—clone I) were rooted in perlite in a nursery. In early spring (1 March), 24 homogeneously rooted and uniform in size (height ranged between 18 and 20 cm) cuttings (of each clone) were selected for the experiments and randomly assigned to pots.   Methods. Two concurrent field trials were conducted: trial 1 compared root attributes of trees from cuttings, stakes, and poles of a single poplar clone, while trial 2 compared those of trees from cuttings of six poplar clones. Excavations of entire trees were conducted in autumn for three (trial 1) or two (trial 2) years after planting. ResultsCited by: 2.
