Abstract

In the present study, ten plus trees were selected based on morphologically superior parents at Forest College and Research Institute, Mettupalayam, for investigation of flowering phenology of Neem (Azadirachta indica). From the observation 100 fruit weight and oil percent had significant high heritability and genetic advance this may indicate additive gene action among the traits. Inflorescence length and 100 fruit weight had high positive correlation followed by number of fruits per inflorescence with fruiting percent. Therefore, those phonological traits are used as a selection index for future genetic improvement studies of neem for high seed production.
