Title: Geographic Source Variation in Seedling Growth and Nodulation of Acacia senegal var senegal in Sudan.
Author: Elfeel, A.A.; Warrag, Essam I.
Abstract: Geographic source variation of Acacia senegal seedlings in growth traits and nodulation under different irrigation and soil treatments was investigated. Eight Geographical locations across the gum belt that varies in soil and rainfall were identified as seed sources. Bulked seeds from each location were sown in clay and sand soil with normal irrigation and after 40 days irrigation treatment of every two or eight days was applied. Growth traits and nodulation were assessed monthly at four destructive harvests. The sources showed marked differences in growth traits. Cluster analysis showed three distinct groups of provenances that were associated with the original soil in the natural range of the species. One group was represented by sources from clay soil, the second group were sources from sandy soil and the third one was represented by Abu Gerais source from gardud soil . Irrigation and soil treatments also had significant effect on growth traits and nodulation.
