Tree Improvement and Development of Quality Planting Materials of Indigenous Tree Species and Industrial Tree Plantation (ITP) Species

Genetic Variation of Falcata (Falcataria mollucana) resistant to Gall Rust and Pink Canker.


  • 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 best families into seedling seed orchards.
  • To determine the genetic variation of falcata species resistant’s to Gall rust and Pink canker.
