Abstract

Differences in bark and wood content in woody biomass directly affect its quality and economic value as an energy source. In order to estimate the quality of biomass before harvesting, an allometric regression of bark percentage of total aboveground biomass and DHB (diameter at 1.30 m height) was...

Abstract

High-density short-rotation poplar (Populus sp.) plantations are a large potential biomass energy resource in Italy. These energy crops also have great environmental benefits in comparison with fossil fuels, particularly when used for direct combustion. The author gives a short account of the...

Abstract

The EU has been financing a project to develop technologies for the conversion of biomass into electrical energy. The Italian part of the project uses 8 tonnes of dry woody material per hour to produce 12 MW of electrical energy. ISMA is carrying out research to identify appropriate machinery for...

Abstract

Summarizes the results of a survey of Poplar growing on about 80 estates in the Po valley, made for the Italian Poplar Commission. Subjects discussed include: selection of clones (Populus 'I-214' still being the most popular, though clones of P. deltoides, resistant to Marssonina brunnea, are under ...

Abstract

Reports encouraging preliminary results of three trials at two stations (in Umbria and Sardinia), where 79 clones of P. X euramericana [P. X canadensis], 19 clones of P. deltoides and 24 clones of P. nigra and P. X euramericana X P. nigra were examined three years after planting, as well as 52...

Abstract

Describes tests of 600 Populus deltoides clones and 148 P. nigra clones at a nursery near Rome, and of 73 P. X euramericana [P. X canadensis] clones at a nursery at Spello (Perugia), in comparison with P. 'I-214'. Of the P. deltoides clones 100 were rejected because of poor rooting, but 85% rooting ...

Abstract

At Spello nursery, Italy (lat. 42° 58' N., long. 12° 37' E.), annual height growth in the second growing season and total height of seedlings of P. deltoides raised from seed from different latitudes in the U.S.A. (30°-45° N.) were both closely and negatively correlated with increasing latitude....

Abstract

Eighteen clones from Illinois and 240 from Mississippi, planted in 1962, grew rapidly at first, but after 6 years only 3 clones exceeded the control (P. 'I-214') in b.a. and 5 in volume. They were exacting as to soil and moisture, inclined to branchiness, and susceptible to wind and to attacks of...

Abstract

Parts of the stem of rooted cuttings were preferable to lateral shoots of two-year-old stock and to coppice shoots, and those from the middle or lower part of the stem rooted better than those from the top. In N. Italy, planting should be done in the spring. Moisture content of the cuttings should...
