Title: Shoot position affects root initiation and growth of dormant unrooted cuttings of Populus

Author: Zalesny, R.S., Jr. Jr.; Hall, R.B.; Bauer, E.O.; Riemenschneider, D.E.;

Date: 2003

Source: Silvae Genetica. 52: 273-279.

Publication Series: Scientific Journal (JRNL)

Description: Rooting of dormant unrooted cuttings is crucial to the commercial deployment of intensively cultured poplar (Populus spp.) plantations because it is the first biological prerequisite to stand establishment. Rooting can be genetically controlled and subject to selection. Thus, our objective was to test for differences in rooting ability among cuttings from three positions on cutting orchard plants of five genomic groups ([Bartr. ex Marsh x P. trichocarpa Torr. & Gray P. deltoides] x P. deltoides 'BC', P. deltoides 'D;, P. deltoides H P. maximowiczii A. Henry 'DM', P. deltoides x P. nigra L. 'DN', P. nigra x P. maximowiczii 'NM').

Keywords: Poplar, lateral rooting, adventitious rooting, rooting ability, short rotation intensive culture
