Raw data from ASSIGNING MORPHOLOGICAL TRAITS AS DESCRIPTORS FOR DIFFERENTIATION BETWEEN Jatropha curcas ACCESSIONS
Morphological data acquired from an experimental plantation of Jatropha curcas, in order to describe phenotypically, new accessions, and F1 crosses and describe a new method for trait categorization and varietal description.
Steps to reproduce
Accession collection from CIATEJ consisting of 9 wild type accessions and 15 F1 crosses One m diameter holes filled with homogenous substrate were prepared separated on a 2 x 2 m shaping a plot of 24 grooves with 35 holes each. The plot was prepared with 35 plants per groove; On each groove, no more than five plants per accession was present to minimize the effect of the soil and plot location on growth and morphological traits. Plants grew for one year and then were homogenized to 70 cms hight and fertilized with 1 kg of bovine manure Plants grew for seven more months until data was acquired Irrigation was applied every three day Pest control was homogenous for all plants with agronomic commercial insecticide and fungicide
