DescriptionHybrid poplar cuttings were fumigated with sulfur dioxide ranging in concentration from 0.1 to 5 ppm for periods of 5 to 80 hours. At the end of the fumigation periods, the cuttings were harvested and the sulfur and chlorophyll contents of the leaves were measured. At 0.1 ppm and 0.25 ppm the sulfur content initially increased, but decreased as fumigation continued. At 3 ppm and 5 ppm the sulfur content of the leaves significantly increased, and foliar injury was apparent. No statistically significant change in chlorophyll content was observed.
