Key Words: Basic Density, fibre characteristics, clones, paper and pulp.
Abstract: The basic density, and some of the anatomical properties of five clones of Eucalyptus tereticornis developed by ITC Bhadrachalam were reported. The five clones represented by four trees each of four and half years old, were from Sarapaka, Andhra Pradesh. Significant variation have been found among the clones except fibre length/vessel element length. Basic density was found no effect on any of the fibre characteristics reported in this paper. The results obtained in this study have shown the suitability of raw material for paper and pulp where the required basic density is met with. Mainly these clones are primarily tried to meet the requirements of paper and pulp industry.
