Aiming to define convenient propagation techniques of giant reed, alternative to rhizom propagation which is too expensive, in the years 2009-2010, in Anzola dell'Emilia (BO), have been compared several methods of agamic propagation based on stem cuttings buried vertically and horizontally, micropropagated plants, and rhizoms. Our results indicate that the method based on shoot cutting buried horizontally in coupled rows is viable to obtain a satifactory crop establishment, in terms of rapidity and uniformity of new emitted stems. In order to obtain good results, however, it is necessary to assure a adequate soil water content during the period from shoot cuttings burial until the complete emissions of the new stems. The lower productivity, compared to rhizoms propagation, observed in the first two years is of relatively low importance if one consider the long duration of the giant reed stand.
