Topic : Studies on Growth Performance and Variance Components in Madhuca Indica Genotypes

Authors:M. S. Wani || A. M. Wani

Abstract:During 2012, in the month of August, the study was undertaken at School of Forestry and Environment, SHUATS, Allahabad, Uttar Pradesh, India, to ascertain the growth performance and variance components of Madhuca indica genotypes. The experiments were conducted in open field environmental conditions using a Randomized Block Design with three replications. Twenty genotypes collected from candidate plus trees in different parts of Allahabad, Uttar Pradesh, and its adjoining areas were assessed for eleven traits namely seedling height, collar diameter, internodal length, number of leaves per seedling, leaf area, fresh and dry shoot weight, fresh and dry root weight, shoot/root ratio and total biomass of seedling. Based on the growth performance of these genotypes at six months after sowing of seeds in poly-bags, the following genotypes: G12, G20, G19, G9, and G13, in that order, were found to be superior to other genotypes. Since all the traits showed moderately high heritability and genetic gain, it appears that selection based on these traits would be effective for further improvement of the tree as such the tree being highly valued for having multipurpose uses and one among the tree borne oil seed plants. .

Keywords: Madhuca indica, growth performance, variance components, genetic gain
