On the ideal depth for sowing Mahogany - Swietenia macrophylla



Brasil Florestal 5(17): 42-47



Seeds of S. macrophylla were sown in the nursery at depths of 1, 2, 3.. 8 cm. Germination %, and seedling height and dry weight after 11/2 months, were recorded and analysed statistically. There was no significant difference in germination % between sowing depths, but highly significant differences in height growth, the tallest and shortest seedlings being those from sowing depths of 1 and 8 cm respectively. Seedlings grown from shallow sowings were also superior in dry weight.
