DescriptionSummarizes growth, yield, and disease resistance of 95 poplar clones at or near rotation age (culmination of mean annual increment). Plantations were established from 1986 to 1992 in Wisconsin, Minnesota, North and South Dakota. Clones DN164, DN177, DN154, NM2, NE264, DN170, and DN21 are recommended for further testing.
