Productivity of Populus in monoclonal and polyclonal blocks at three spacings

  title={Productivity of Populus in monoclonal and polyclonal blocks at three spacings},
  author={Dean S. Debell and Constance A. Harrington}
Four Populus clones were grown at three spacings (0.5, 1.0, and 1.5 m) in monoclonal plots and in polyclonal plots with all clones in intimate mixture. After the third year, many individual tree and stand traits differed significantly by clone, spacing, deployment method, and their interactions. Differences among clones in growth and stem form were greater in polyclonal than in monoclonal plots, and differences in performance between deployment methods were greater in the denser spacings… CONTINUE READING
