Variety of downy birch (Betula pubescens Ehrh.) Belros-3 (2017-11-28)
Birch is the main forest-forming deciduous tree species of the Russian Federation, occupying 15% of the forest area. Until now, not one birch variety has been registered in the State Register of Breeding Achievements. For the first time in Russia, a new variety of downy birch was created that differs from non-selective genotypes by high stability of various growth characteristics, increased productivity and increased sizes of wood fiber. The genotype can be used in short-rotation forest plantations.
