Abstract: 3DEPARTMENT OF FORESTRY Faculty of Environment science Awadhesh Pratap singh University, Rewa Madhya pradesh Studies on fifteen Seed source variation in seed traits of Dalbergia Sissoo (Roxb) SHARDA DUBEY*, SANDEEP TRIPATHI AND RAKESH MEENA The present investigation entitled Studies on fifteen Seed source variation in seed traits of Dalbergia Sissoo (Roxb) was carried out in the Department of Forestry. The aim of this investigation was to measure the variability in seed of Dalbergia Sissoo. Seed was collected from Allahabad, Bhopal, Buxar, Faizabad, Lucknow, Maihar, Mirzapur, Patna, Kanpur, Pratapgarh, Varanasi, Sultanpur, Sidhi, Satna and Rewa. Seed traits viz. Length of seed ranged between (6.61-8.79 mm), Width of seed (4.36-6.38 mm), Thickness of seed (0.44-0.66 mm), Wt. of 100 of seed (1.88-2.84 g) and viability of seed (83.65-89.65 g) was recorded. The present studies was suggests Kanpur and Rewa is the Best Seed Source. These trees may be used for further selection to maintain broad genetic base in any tree selection programme. Seed source screening provides a great opportunity for tree breeder to screen and capture natural variation for success of afforestation, besides providing information on the raw material for breeding and evolving improved planting stock within a seed source. Such an investigation may help in selection of most suitable seed source for a given site for conservation, breeding and improvement in this species.
