Abstract

The rootability of adventitious shoots from root segments of the section Leuce, genus Populus.

Abstract

Root segments of 20 Aspen hybrid clones were planted as a source of young suckers for stem-cutting propagation. When suckers reached 4-7 cm they were transplanted into coarse, acid sand in polystyrene tubes in a growth chamber. There was considerable clonal variation in both production of suckers and rootability of suckers. P. alba hybrids with P. sieboldii, P. grandidentata and P. davidiana rooted best. P. tremuloides was rated as an average rooter, with 40% survival of cuttings.
