Abstract:

Palmyra palm (Borassus flabelliferL ) or commonly called Taad or Tarh is a palm tree of the Sugar palm group. It is an important multipurpose tree of great utility. There is a rich genetic diversity of palmyrah in Bihar, but no database is available regarding Palmyra. Thus a study was undertaken to study the variability in Palmyra for their plant morphological traits and yield parameters. Sample was collected during fruiting season and plants with diverse in nature for tree characteristics and fruit yield. Among 22 genotypes selected in the area surveyed, the great variability was noted with respect to plant height (dwarf and Tall) and yield parameters. The average height of the palms  was 15.22m with a variation from 7.10m in PC-7 to 22.50m in PC-12.Trunk girth varied from 137cm (PC-11) to 180 cm (PC-6)  and . Bunch number ranged from 7 bunch/tree to 34 bunches/tree in with yield variation from 84 fruit /palm to480 fruits. Grfeat variations in leaf parameters were also observed.
