In the present investigation the growth performance of Ipil-Ipil (Leucaena
leucocephala (Lam.) de wit.) seedling was studied under different conditions
in the nursery. In dry season, the growth is poor, but starting the wet season,
there was sharp rise in growth. In height and diameter growth, Seedbed under
peat with cowdung mixture showed the best result, then polybag and plastic tray
in all the media. In all types of containers, peat with cowdung mixture showed
the best result. Similarly seedling growth performances showed good relation
with seasonal variations. Leaf production also showed the same trend with seasonal
variations as well as growth performance.
