Title : Root biomass distribution in a energy willow plantation
Key words : energy willow; rootstock; willow root
Summary :

The objective of the paper was to determine the distribution of energy willow roots biomass, which is significant for developing a structure of a machine for reclamation of fields after their cultivation. The scope of work covered the research studies carried out on 30 rootstocks of energy willow, which come from a plantation set up in 2003 in the Department of Production Engineering and Power Energy of the University of Agriculture in Krakow. A vertical scope of thick roots with a diameter above 30 mm was at the average 42.3 cm and the horizontal one was – 51.6 cm. Total fresh mass of rootstock (roots + butt log) was 18.61 kg at the average, and the mass of thick roots was – 7.75 kg.
