Propagation of Nutmeg

C.M. Asare, S.O. Bennett-Lartey


The mode of propagation of a tree crop is perhaps the most important factor in its successful cultivation. Nut-meg is a dioecious plant which is propagated sexually and asexually, the former being the usual practice. The mode of propagation tends to influence progenies in terms of heredity, plant architecture and the gestation period. This paper describes the methods tested at the Plant Genetic Resources Centre (CSIR-PGRC), Bunso and points out the merits and demerits of the different techniques used in the propagation of nutmeg.
