Uttarakhand forest researchers develop a fast growing eucalyptus

By Super Admin

Haldwani (Uttarakhand), July 1 (ANI): Forest researchers and scientists at the Forest Research Institute of Haldwani in Uttarakhand have developed a fast growing variety of Eucalyptus.

Developed after extensive research of 10 years, this variety grows faster than the normal Eucalyptus plant.

The new variety is based on Brazilian cloning model. Experts choose the best productive plant as mother plant, which would be further cut into small pieces for developing plant shoots.

The main advantage of this variety is that it develops in a very limited time period.

"The most vital thing regarding this clone variety is that it develops in a very short span of time...the other thing is that the plant contains all the genetic characteristics of its mother plant...since we choose the best tree for cloning and CPT (carnitine palmitoyltransferase) so all properties will be inherited to the cloned plant. Sufficient development take place in 10-12 years in normal variety whereas this clonal variety will be ready in 5 to 6 years," M. S. Bisht, a forest scientist at the Forest Research Institute, Haldwani.

Experts feel that this newly developed Eucalyptus variety would provide additional income to the farmers.

Besides, these plants would also be used in the afforestation and providing raw material to the paper mills and other industries. By Vipul Goel (ANI)
