Field Performance of New Energy Poplar Clones in Combination with Different Planting Density

M. Di Candilo & E. Ceotto
Among the woody species, poplar (Populus ssp.) in SRF appears to a be the best suited energy crop for the environmental conditions of Northern Italy. Nevertheless, it should be considered that productivity of poplar SRF is often modest, when compared to other energy crops. For this reason, a substantial effort in breeding is on progress, with the purpose of obtaining clones selected for energy purposes. The scope of the present study was to evaluate the...
