Abstract

Nothapodytes foetida (Wight) Sleumer, which is having problems with seed germination,
is the subject of the present study. Seeds collected from various geographical locations
expressed different germinability and Camptothecin content. Successful attempts were made to
improve the germination percentage and protocol is derived for maximum production of
seedlings by adopting the technique of in vitro seed culture. Percent of seedling production by
conventional methods and improvised method were compared and found to be highly efficient
for mass production of this high value tree species.
