Method of breeding of coconut palms. A comment on the improvement of the coconut palm by breeding and selection of Dr. S. C. Harland


Method of breeding of coconut palms. A comment on the improvement of the coconut palm by breeding and selection of Dr. S. C. Harland



Trop Agric ceylon 116(3): 185-189



Studies on heritability and genetic correlation of 4 characters, which are more or less related to yield capacity of coconut palms, suggest that selection of mother palms in an open-pollinated population would be effective. The selection on the basis of copra yield would be more effective than the selection on the basis of any 1 of other characters such as flowering-period, number of nuts or weight of a husked nut. Most effective would be the use of the selection index. The method of paired crosses as recommended by S. C. Harland would not be very useful from the standpoint of practical coconut breeding, because it would require a great deal of labor and probably nore than 10 years for detecting genetical high yielders.
