    Abstract : Three experiments were conducted at 3 forest divisions (Ludhiana (Baddowal, site-I), Gurdaspur (site-II) and Tarn-Taran (site-III)) in Punjab, India, to estimate the productivityproductivitySubject Category: Properties

    (MAI) of 28.80 m3 ha/year, over bark and 23.49 m3 ha/year, under bark, at an age of 3 years. Clone 526 performed better at Gurdaspur with maximum MAI (productivity) of 21.15 m3 ha/year, over bark and 17.25 m3 ha/year, under bark. At Amritsar, clone 413 was most productive with MAI of 36.07 m3 ha/year, over bark and 29.42, m3 ha/year, under bark, at the age of 2.5 years. The present study revealed that clone 413 gave outstanding productivity over bark ranging from 28.80 to 36.07 m3 ha/year. However, clones like 526, 2045, 2070, and 285 also performed well. The analysis of data from private farms revealed that clone 288 gave an MAI of 48.79 m3 ha/year over bark, followed by clone 316 with an MAI of 33.70 m3 ha/year (private farm at Hoshiarpur) at the age of 4 and 5 years, respectively. Though the other clones under study had less productivity, nevertheless their productivity was significantly higher than seed route plantsplantsSubject Category: Organism Names
