AbstractFull Text

Acacia mangium Willdenow and Acacia auriculiformis A. Cunningham ex Bentham and their hybrid have become important planting species in Malaysia. Due to their high demand and consumption, development of high quality planting materials is desired. Conventional breeding of Acacia Miller is slow but...

AbstractFull Text

The forest tree species Khaya senegalensis (Desr.) A. Juss. occurs in a belt across 20 African countries from Senegal-Guinea to Sudan-Uganda where it is a highly important resource. However, it is listed as Vulnerable (IUCN 2015-3). Since introduction in northern Australia around 1959, the species...

AbstractFull Text

Very little work has been done in determining plantation productivity in African mahogany in the Northern Territory. This paper reports growth in a series of provenance trials planted annually from 1970/71 to 1972/73 at Gunn Point near Darwin, and measured in 2000. Supplementary growth data was...

Where to from here with R&D to underpin plantations of high-value timber species in the 'seasonally-dry' tropics of northern Australia? Proceedings of a workshop organised by Private Forestry North Queensland and Queensland Department of Primary Industries and Fisheries, Townsville, Australia, 9-11 May, 2006, 2006, pp 1-14
AbstractFull Text

African mahogany Khaya senegalensis is the favoured species for high-value plantations in the Top End of the Northern Territory because it has outperformed others in extensive trials over 40 years. Despite its vigour, Khaya is characterised by poor form that may be related to its genetics,...

AbstractFull Text

The effective estate of African mahogany (K. senegalensis) in the Northern Territory (NT) totals about 200 ha as of mid 2006. It comprises stands representing three eras of planting: - mostly trials planted pre-1975 (about 7 ha remaining of some 20 ha planted) - the trials and other plantings of...

AbstractFull Text

Land preparation and establishment techniques described are based on those used for the successful establishment of African mahogany in the Top End of the Northern Territory between Darwin and Katherine. These comprise the extensive RIRDC funded 2000/2002 trials, and the more recent clone tests...

AbstractFull Text

Early results (to 6.5 y) of a provenance trial of Chukrasia planted in 1999 at Berry Springs, some 50 km S of Darwin in the Northern Territory (NT) with a mean annual rainfall (MAR) of ca. 1900 mm (mostly during November to March), show great variation among provenances in growth, bark, crown...

AbstractFull Text

Prospects seem good for a viable plantation industry with African mahogany justifying increased, integrated R&D. Regions in northern Australia are identified where extensive plantings (more than 150 ha in each) have been established (4 regions) or only trials presently exist (3 regions). The...

AbstractFull Text

Although many trees carry huge crops of pods with viable seed, on commonly-accepted criteria for choosing trees for seed collection for commercial plantations, there is little or no suitable seed of African mahogany (Khaya senegalensis-KS) available yet in the Northern Territory. The dangers of...
