  journal={Tree Genetics & Genomes},
A successful clonal forestry program for loblolly pine based on rooted cutting technology needs to consider selection for both rooting ability and subsequent field growth. Rooting ability and second-year height were assessed in more than 2,000 clones from 70 full-sib families of loblolly pine. The bivariate analysis of rooting ability from five rooting trials and field growth from six field trials allowed for estimation of the genetic covariance between rooting ability and second-year height… CONTINUE READING
