Abstract

Tests show that to keep a reserve of P. alba and P. nigra seed for one month, to cover nursery failures, it is best to dry it (2 days) to 13-14% m.c. and enclose in airtight glass vessels with a gauze cylinder of Ca(ClO3)2, Storing it in a cellar. Cellar temperatures up to 15° C. did not affect...

Describes a method of layering from rooted saplings of P. alba and P. canescens, species not amenable to reproduction from cuttings. The saplings, planted at 2 X 2 m., are cut back to two basal lateral shoots when these are nearly 2 m. long. These shoots are then layered in shallow trenches along...

Abstract

Among methods tested (storage in vacuo, ultraviolet and infra-red treatments, etc.) storage with an equal weight of dried peat proved best. The peat is heated in an ordinary boiler to 100-120° C., thereby losing all its water. It is then cooled to 50°. Poplar seed so stored showed 33 % germination...

Abstract

Describes the two local varieties [Populus alba vars. nivea and peronea], which are much more resistant to insect damage than the hybrid Black Poplars, and give a satisfactory yield (mean annual yield ca. 20-25 cu.m./ha.). Mixed stands of this Poplar and Alnus glutinosa are recommended. KEYWORDS:...
