        that was some good information there amith, can you tell us more about the required habitat of malabar neem?


        • #5
          well, can you describe the phenology of malabar neem plants?


          • #6
            hey what are the physical and mechanical properties of malabar wood?


            • #7
              Round, tube molded pack free and straight bole timber is the intrinsic component of

              Melia dubia. The length of fiber is medium averaging 0.961 mm, involving tight

              cells with a typical width of 0.025 mm. Lumen width midpoints 0.017 mm. cell

              dividers are pitiful at 0.005 mm. The sapwood is grayish-white, ordinarily with a yellowish

              cast; the "beartwood" is light pink to red when at first revealed, turning pale immaculate chestnut

              on developing, subject to dim stain. [t is polished with dry feel and without trademark

              aroma or taste. It contains, on the ordinary, 0.29 % slag, 3.79 % alcohol benzene

              dissolvable extractives, 4.9 % water-solubles, 27.41 % lignin and 63.54 % cellulose. [t is

              light (specific gravity is pretty much 0.34, weight is around 336 kg/m) at 12 %

              clamminess content), straight-grained, coarse and genuinely uneven-textured and awesome framing quality. Yearly advancement rings are 3 or 4 to an inch. Timber is not strong in

              uncovered circumstances however decently so under spread; it is not as strong and intense as


              Indian Plywood Industries Research and Training Institute (IPIRTI) has

              overviewed the typical physical and mechanical properties. Thickness is 520 m3

              , Tensile

              quality is ·54 N/mm2 (along the grain) and 34 N/mm2 (over the grain), Compressive

              quality is 34 N/mm2 (along the grain) and 29 N/mm2 (over the grain), Modulus of

              break is 49 N/mm2 (along the grain) and 29 N/mm2 (over the grain), Modulus of

              flexibility is 7355 N/mm2 (along the grain) and 3923 N/mm2 (over the grain),

              Modulus of rigid nature is 588 N/mm2 and move ing shear quality is 3 N/mm2

              . Since it has

              low values concerning all physical mechanical properties diverged from the

              prescribed standard as per IS:710, the timber can be used for gathering of low

                well thanks for the information shushma, do you have any information about seasoning and preservation behaviour of malabar neems?

                  The timber seasons well if the logs are changed over while in a green state. In the occasion that left

                  for long as log, it is at danger to make end splitti~g. In the same path as other

                  Meliaceous timbers, it contracts fundamentally over the grain on drying. The best

                  technique for dealing with the timber is to change over the logs not long after resulting to felling and

                  open stack the sawn material, in a perfect world under shade to keep up a key separation from faint stain. It saws

                  moreover, satisfies desires smoothly.

                          wow, malabar neem is like malabar gold, it is very potential in so many aspects, i have heard about its role on soil enrichment also,
                          Shedding of thick foliage and plenteous organic products includes gigantic amount of

                          natural matter to the dirt which improve the microbial movement furthermore upgrades soil

                          ripeness consequently expanding yields of rural harvests. It has the ability to make due at

                          a rise running from 100 m to 2000 m above Mean Sea Level, henceforth most

                          suitable for afforestation programs. It was accounted for tbat Melia duhia along witb

                          Tric_hode_rma viridae bas tbe ability to debase ordinarily happening pesticide in

                          soil buildups of endosulpbon and acepbate in-vitro conditions and tberefore, it

                          can be suggested for soil recovery (badlands).

                              Seeds, however bounteous are not used to raise seedlings as an aftereffect of issues in

                              germination. The seeds shed on ground are consumed, coming to fruition seeds from the

                              fecal matter and those from stool are used for raising nursery seedlings. Stem

                              cuttings are in like manner advantageous.
