Export citation

In studies at Tecuala, in Nayarit on the Pacific coast of Mexico, 90 stakes of each of Bursera simaruba, Gliricidia sepium, Jatropha sp., Ficus padifolia and Salix chilensis were planted at different intervals (1, 3, 6, 9 and 12 days after cutting) in plots of 6 m2, placing 6 stakes per plot. Variables recorded were: plant establishment, coverage and sprouting. Data were analysed by using a complete randomized design with a 5×5 factorial arrangement and the Duncan test. The results indicated that there was no significant difference (p>.05) in planting days for any species. There were significant differences between species in percentage establishment: 84.4, 81.1, 78.8, 25.5 and 4.4% for, respectively, B. simaruba, G. sepium, Jatropha sp., F. padifolia and S. chilensis. The percentage coverage and number of sprouts were 54.5% and 8.2 for B. simaruba, 35.8% and 5.4 for G. sepium, 48.3% and 4.1 for Jatropha sp., 9.4% and 7.2 for F. padifolia and 1.3% and 0.2 for S. chilensis. It is concluded that B. simaruba, G. sepium and Jatropha sp. are the species most suitable to be used as live fencing in the region.
