Abstract

We need to learn more about environmental conditions that promote or hinder rooting of unrooted dormant hybrid poplar cuttings. Planting cuttings and recording survival after the growing season is not suitable to keep up with industrial demands for improved stock. This method does not provide information about specific genotype x environment interactions. We know very little about genotypic rooting responses to variable environmental conditions. Yet tests are finally cost effective with current technologies.
