Abstract:
The morphological characteristics of the fruits and seeds, germination and seedling growth performance of Ipil-Ipil (Leucaena leucocephala (Lam.) de wit.) were studied under different conditions in the nursery. The average length (cm), breath (cm) and number of seed per fruits varied from (19.71±0.08); (2.11±0.03) and (20.08±0.61) as well as seeds, the length (cm), breath (cm), thickness (cm) and dry weight per seeds (g) ranges from (0.83±0.03); (0.55±0.014); (0.169±0.04) and (0.059±0.002). The rate of untreated seed germination was tried in the polybag, seed tray and seedbed. The highest germination was found in polybag under peat with cowdung mixture about (66%) and lowest germination was found in seedbed in all rooting media.
