Rootstock (Sida)

Written by Reinhard Sperr on January 19, 2018 in Energy Plants Knowledgebase Sida

The rootstock consists of many meaty thickened single roots at the base and finer root-hair. Due to its ability to penetrate into deeper soil layers, Sida is still attractive on relatively dry locations (under 500-600 mm annual rainfall), as compared to other extensive energy plants. Among energy woods, only robinia, perhaps, may thrive under such conditions.
