Selection of drought tolerant Robinia pseudoacacia

Agroforestry systems as a land-use adapted to increasing drought, sub-project provision of adapted plant material of Robinia

Longterm studies in Brandenburg have shown Robinia with respect to growth potential especially suitable for drought exposed sites.

Background and Objective

Aim of the project is the provision of adapted Robinia plant material


An increase of the gentic base with seed sources from Europe and the original area of distribution on North America as well as the further improvement by selections is planned.
