Biotechnological generation of tetraploid parent plants of poplar and black locust for breeding of highly productive triploid trees (Tetraploide)

The high growth performance and resistance traits of triploid trees are well known for a long time. With respect to recently enhanced activities at creating and selecting new plant material for biomass production, triploids might be of increasing importance. The aim of the project is the generation of stable tetraploid plants to use them as parent plants for cross breeding to get triploid plants with high performance. In contrast to other methods, combining polyploidisation of plants with in v
