Madhuca longifolia (Koen.) Mac Bride. var. latifolia (Roxb.) Chev. commonly known as Mahua is an important tree borne oil seeds harnessed in most of the tribal areas in India, especially for its rich oil content. The present study was an attempt to investigate the morphophysiological variability in seeds of Mahua trees along with its oil content and fatty acids compositions, which will help to identify the high oil yielding genotypes from Western Ghats of India. During the study, 71 accessions… Expand
