Abstract

The investigation entitled “Investigation of silvics of Phoenix sylvestris - a climate resilient multipurpose tree species” was carried out in different locations of seven agro-climatic zones of Odisha namely Mid Central Table Land zone, North Western Plateau zone, North Central Plateau zone, North Eastern Coastal Plain zone, East & South Eastern Coastal Plain zone, Western Undulating Zone and Western Central Table Land zone during January 2016 to July 2017. The experiment was laid out in Nested Design with 3 replications. A significant variation was observed with regard to height of fruit bearing trees (4.93 to 16.90 m), DBH of fruit bearing trees (21.02 to 33.90 cm), crown spread of fruit bearing trees (3 to 5.93 m), length of leaves (2.17 to 3.98 m) and leaf width (29.97 to 52.67 cm). There was significant variation in 100 fruit weight from 156.35 to 305.46 g, pulp percentage from 45.21 to 53.57 % and fruit yield from 4.475 to 32.311 kg/tree.
