Teak ( Tectona grandis )

Teak (Tectona grandis), is a genus of tropical hard wood trees in the family Verbinaceae, native to the south and southeast of Asia.

They are large trees, growing to 30-40 m tall, deciduous in the dry season

Teak timber qualities include attractiveness in colour and grain, durability, lightness with strength, ease of seasoning without splitting and cracking, ease of working and carving, resistance to termite, fungus, and weathering.

AG Bioteck is successful in identifying the “Plus Trees” with desirable characters in Teak in all major growing states and developed the tissue culture techniques for mass multiplication with clone marking

Tissue Culture Technology

Tissue culture teak plants come with well-established root system, grows straight, less branching

Tissue culture plants developed from single meristem tissues, isolated from known, established Plus Trees, with all desirable characters. Hence yield is at expected at an early years (9years) with uniform size and 90% heartwood formation in all the tissue cultured Trees

Thinning is not at all required for a population of 300 plants per acre.

Soil/Temperature : Teak grows best on deep, well-drained alluvial soils derived from limestone and Soil pH range is 5.0-8.0

Climate :Teak grows naturally over a wide range of climatic condition, from the very dry (500 mm/year) to the very moist (up to 5,000 mm/year). The annual rainfall should be between 1,200 and 2,500 mm with a marked dry season of 3-5 months for the production of high quality wood with optimum growth.Teak requires High light intensity. The optimum temperature is 27-36°C.

Planting :The planting site has a strong effect on the growth, development and wood quality of teak plantations.

Spacing : 12’ x12’ where 300 plants per acre can accommodated and thinning is not required in this spacing for Tissue culture teak Plants
