Intraspecific competition in Leucaena leucocephala: spatial arrangement of floral buds and pods


, : Intraspecific competition in Leucaena leucocephala: spatial arrangement of floral buds and pods. Leucaena Research Reports 8: 25-26

Observations were made of flowering and fruiting in a plot of L. leucocephala K8 (30x30 m) on the University Campus of Chandigarh from July 1983 to July 1984. There were 10 subplots of increasing density from 2500 to 40 000 trees/ha, and observations were made on 5 plants per subplot. Plants were divided into lower, middle, upper and top zones. Observations were made for each zone on numbers of branches, flowering branches, inflorescences per branch and pods.

L. leucocephala seed inoculated with Rhizobium was sown at 5 densities between 3100 and 62 500 plants/ha and at a row width either equal to or 4 times the intra-row spacing. Assessments up to age 7 yr showed that max. yields of edible leucaena wer...
