Productivity enhancement through selection of superior clones of Dalbergia sissoo.

Principal Investigator: Dr. Rajesh Sharma
Duration: 2007-2013

Clones of Dalbergia sissoo in their studies for genetic variation, stress and insect resistance revealed genetic variation for growth parameters as well as for allelic diversity, heterozygosity and genetic distances. The clones were also found to vary with regard to their resistance for stress and insect resistance. The field performance of the selected clones at two different locations further confirmed the selection of the clones based on genetic variation and stress and insect-resistance.
