Abstract

Attempts were made to study the physiological basis for the variation in
production trends of certain coconut hybrids and their parents. The hybrids in general
recorded more chlorophyll content, photosynthetic rate, soluble protein and nitrate
reductase activity and low respiratory rates. East Coast Tall amongst the parents and
Malaysian Dwarf Yellow (MDY) X East Coast Tall (ECT) and its reciprocal amongst
the hybrids were identified as better material for the production potential in terms of
high photosynthetic rates coupled with low respiratory rates. The studies indicate the
possibility of using these physiological parameters in selecting vigorous seedlings in
the nursery stage itself.
