Abstract:
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.
