Variation Between Two Hybrid Poplars in Susceptibility to the Inhibiting Effect of Grass and Weeds
Abstract:The experiments reported in this paper indicate that hybrid poplars are so highly susceptible to the inhibiting effect of grass that there is only a remote possibility of discovering types that can be established successfully on sod land without site preparation. The author suggests that hardwood species which volunteer naturally on abandoned fields may possess greater inherent resistance, and that with these species selection and controlled breeding may result in the discovery or creation of clonal variants capable of successful establishment on abandoned farm land without previous site preparation.
