PARTIAL RESULTS CONCERNING THE BEHAVIOR OF ENERGY WILLOW GENOTYPES IN CULTIVATED IMPROPER AREAS
AbstractThe paper presents partial results recorded on some experimental fields with energy willow (Salix viminalis) for recovery of land unfit for agriculture. Lately appeared the need for comprehensive studies to identify optimal solutions for these lands, namely the selection of genotypes to exploit their productive potential, but also to be adapted on summers with high temperatures (above 35Â°C) and extremely dry, and the cold winters. This was an attempt to test in the conditions of 2015 Swedish energy willow genotypes approved for cultivation in Romania, genotypes that were compared to some Romanian clones and hybrids. The main goal of the experience is to identify genotypes that possess tolerance/resistance to biotic and abiotic stress factors, in the specific area of southern Romania and introduce the current range of energy that crop plants.
