Influence of degree of fruit maturity on seed germination, seedling vigour and storability of sandal (Santalum album)



Influence of degree of fruit maturity on seed germination, seedling vigour and storability of sandal (Santalum album)



Journal of Tropical Forest Science 13(3): 415-422



Sandal (Santalum album) is an important tree in India both economically and Culturally. The study was aimed at deciphering the differences in germinability, seedling vigour and storability of seed obtained from fruits harvested at different stages of maturity. The fruit characteristics, namely, 100 fruit weight, fruit moisture content, 100 seed weight, seed length and seed breadth were closely related to the level of fruit maturity.
