Abstract:

The present investigation was carried out at Forest College and Research Institute, Mettupalayam, Tamil Nadu to estimate the extent of variability and association present for seed parameters of Prosopis juliflora Dc. across its natural distribution in south India for further collection of seeds for afforestation or breeding purpose. The study revealed that seed sources from Tuticorin, Rameshwaram, Ramnad and Keezhakarai exhibit significant amount of variability in all the seed characters investigated viz., seed 2D surface area, seed perimeter, seed length, seed width, seed aspect ratio, hundred seed weight, pod length, number of seeds per pod, viability percentage and germination percentage. These seed sources may be further screened for tree improvement traits considering their immense value in yielding bio diesel.


Keywords: Prosopis juliflora, Seed parameters, Variability and germination percent
