Tree Improvement and Development of Quality Planting Materials of Industrial Tree Plantations of Industrial Tree Plantation Species (ITPs)

Growth and Genetic Variation of First Generation Progenies of Some Industrial Tree plantation species in Eastern Mindanao


  • To identify and verify new potential/candidate trees of ITP species.
  • To maintain operation of the seed processing and storage facilities
  • To develop/package information/technology that will be generated from project implementation
  • To establish half-sib progeny tests of selected mother trees of the identified priority forest tree species;
  • To determine the heritability of phenotypic characteristics observed from the selected candidate plus trees (CPTs);
  • To identify and recommend a list of the best performing parent trees tested; and
  • To convert the PFT into seedling seed orchards
