The effect of the size of the cuttings planted on the subsequent performance of three contrasting willow cultivars for short rotation coppice

The effect of the size of the cuttings planted on the subsequent performance of three contrasting willow cultivars for short rotation coppice

Aspects Of Applied Biology: , 225-231

Interest in bio-energy technologies based upon perennial energy crops such as SRC willow is growing rapidly. The willow crop is vegetatively propagated from stem cuttings. The literature suggests that cutting size may influence subsequent performance. Five Cutting Types were planted in a field experiment and the effects measured over the following three growing seasons. Three cultivars representing the genetic diversity currently marketed were selected.
