Growth performance of sandal wood (Santalum album L.) (An endangered medicinal tree) progenies under nursery conditions
N Krishnakumar, KT Parthiban and S Umesh Kanna
The study was conducted to select superior progenies of Santalum album from predominant sandal growing areas in south India. The results of the nursery experiments revealed that the following two progenies viz., FCRISA 16 (Mysore) and FCRISA 2 (Tirupattur) had found recording significantly higher collar diameter, height and volume index. Hence the integration of these progenies in the tree improvement programme would result in better wood production. The superiority of these two progenies due to juvenile superiority indicated that these two progenies are under strong limelight for immediate utilization and incorporation in the further breeding programme
