Watering procedures for P. alba in semi arid regions

We have developed an optimal procedure for watering Populus alba in semi-arid regions. Quantities and distribution of water during the summer were optimised for survival and growth of a fast growing and drought sensitive species in field conditions. Plants were exposed to contrasting conditions of water availability (high and low water stress) through a drip irrigation system. Results found can be useful in the context of the protection, conservation and restoration of the forest ecosystems in degraded areas.
