Title: Field Establishment of Azadirachta indica, Dalbergia sissoo and Khaya senegalensis in Kondowa Forest, South Darfur State, Sudan
Author: Joda, Badereldin; Goda, Salaeldin
Abstract: This study was conducted in Kondowa Forest Reserve in South Darfur State during August – October 2010 to compare the establishment of Azadirachta indica, Dalbergia sissoo and Khaya senegalensis by seedlings under rainfed conditions. An experiment was executed as randomised complete block design with three replicates. Statistical analysis of measured growth parameters showed significant differences in shoot length and highly significant differences in stem diameter at root collar: The results showed the superiority of Dalbergia sissoo in survival rate under the prevailing conditions: 100%, 91% and 87% for Dalbergia sissoo, Azadirachta indica and Khaya senegalensis, respectively. The average shoot length was 10.8 cm, 9.1 cm and 8.7 cm for Dalbergia sisso, Azadirachta indica and Khaya senegalensis, respectively. The average diameters at root collar were 3.4 cm for Dalbergia sissoo, 3.0 cm for Azadirachta indica and 2.6 cm for Khaya senegalensis. The average root lengths were 25.7 cm for Dalbergia sissoo, 21.4 cm for Azadirachta indica and 22.0 cm for Khaya senegalensis. The three species gave satisfactory establishment, thus encouraging their adoption for future planting programs in the reserved forest and surrounding habitats. Future investigations will be useful for large scale planting.
