Project Information


Note to readers, attached is complete final report for FNE00-327.

The goal of this project has been to develop innovative production practices for the cultivation of a straight growing variety of black locust, providing profit for farmers, as well as environmental benefit. One stand of var. Rectisima was scheduled for clear cut, and we met our goal of securing the genetics. Several production techniques were greatly improved, and local outreach increased.
