A Test of the Validity of Screening Poplar Clones for Long-Term Canker Disease Damage by Responses to Inoculation with Septoria Musiva

Septoria musiva (S. musiva) causes a stem canker disease that severely damages susceptible hybrid poplars in Eastern North America. An earlier field trial demonstrated the potential for short-term responses of poplar stems to inoculation with S. musiva to be predictive of long-term canker disease damage. In the summer of 2000, additional poplar clones primarily selected by a forest industry cooperator on the basis of growth potential (plus the resistant and susceptible standard clones used in the similar field trial in 1998) were inoculated in a test of the validity of the screening procedures.
