Fast-Rotation Areas Cultivation Criteria

Poplars and willows love water. Therefore, the growth of the plants depends on precipitations (at least 300−400 mm during vegetation period), the water holding capacity of the soil and the availability of ground water. Humus/nutrient content is only secondarily important. In particular, the following areas are suitable for planting: Set-aside areas, arable areas, and agricultural marginal lands. Mild loams with good fresh water balances would be an advantage.
