  FORESTRY SYMPOSIUM 1996

VEGITATIVE PROPAGATION OF LUNUMIDELLA (Melia dubia Cav.)

D Thilakaratna
Forestry Research Centre, Kumbalpola



Melia dubia has a good potential as a fast growing, moderate quality timber tree. Its seed germination is very poor, so that it is not possible to ensure a reliable supply of seed for a large-scale planting programme. A successful method of vegetative propagation was found to be to take cuttings from six-months-old seedlings. A cutting was taken from each seedling up to eight times at 5-8 day intervals. The success rate of rooting was 89%.
