Description: Information about the response of poplar (Populus spp.) genotypes to landfill leachate irrigation is needed, along with efficient methods for choosing genotypes based on leachate composition. Poplar clones were irrigated during three cycles of phyto-recurrent selection to test whether genotypes responded differently to leachate and water, and to test whether the methodology had merit as a tool for plant selection during remediation.
Keywords: leachate irrigation, wastewater treatment, chloride stress, clonal selection index, short rotation woody crops, Populus, poplar
