Forest Tree Seeds and Nursery Management (Current Trends)

Virendra Singh (Author) S.K. Lavania (Author)
Synopsis A thorough knowledge of the behaviour of forest tree seeds is the basic key for successful raising of trees for reforestation programmes. The large-scale reforestation programme has necessitated the need of collection of large quantities of seed and that too the quality seeds. Hence, the seed is a very significant input not only in plantation forestry, which requires quality seeds and best nursery practices, but also for the regeneration of natural forests. So the quality seeds have direct and consequential impact on the quality of resulting seedlings and accordingly on the establishment of plantations/ forests. The natural regeneration of forests is not in congruity with the removals that coerce to resort to artificial regeneration. The reforestation programme requires large quantities of quality planting stock. Therefore, an attempt has been made in this edited book of accustom the readers with the prevalent practices in tree seeds and nursery. The book contains 18 chapters and includes seed production, collection and extraction, seed screening, seed dormancy, viability, storage, seed vigour techniques, site selection for nursery, seed sowing techniques, cultural practices, vegetative propagation and protection of nursery from insect pests etc. The book will be useful to those who are interested in the forest tree seeds and nursery techniques for raising seedlings/plants in nurseries and ultimately establishing plantations.
