Producing Elm Seeds on Cut Branches
Abstract:Indoor pollination is now used regularly in breeding poplars, and it can be used in breeding other genera. Indoor pollination not only lengthens the breeding season by 2 to 8 weeks; it also enables the tree breeder to pollinate early-blooming trees by late-blooming trees, to work trees from several localities at the same time, to work trees in exposed locations, and to guard against complete loss from unfavorable weather.
