S S Dhuria, Sunil Kumar Tiwari
Abstract: Albizzia procera is an important agroforestry tree species widely distributed across different agricultural systems of India. More than 20 provenances of Albizzia procera in Chhattisgarh all having differences in seed, germination and seedling growth characters. Therefore to understand about the seed morphology, germination and seedling growth of some provenances is an important step in helping identification of suitable provenance for establishment in Chhattisgarh. The present study describes the variation in the seed and seedling characteristics of Albizzia procera in five provenances viz. , Bilaspur, Bastar, Korba, Raigarh and Sarguja of Chhattisgarh, India. Across five provenances Bilaspur, Bastar and Sarguja showed maximum seed length, seed weight, pod length and pod weight. where as in contrast these values were found lowest in Korba provenances. The Bilaspur and Bastar provenance were regarded as the best provenances in terms of germination and seedling growth characters among all the provenances. This study ensure that the identification potential of seed sources of Albizzia procera for future afforestation and agroforestry systems.
