Abstract

Jatropha carcus is an important plant for the commencement of energy plantation. Jatropha can be grown in marginal, degraded, waste lands in tropical and subtropical regions of the world. It is a partially domesticated plant hence development of high yielding cultivars and package of management practices needs prime importance. The most important use propagation is to produce high quality planting materials. Jatropha can propagate through seeds, cuttings and tissue culture. Due to poor seed germination, short viability and high heterozygosity seed propagation may not produce high quality planting materials. On the other hand propagation through vegetative means or micropropagation can be the most effective alternatives to produce quality seedlings with desirable traits for higher seed and oil yield. Vegetative propagation has inimitable significance to maintain homogeneity among the progeny and provide early production. The aspects of various propagation methods used in Jatropha cultivation such as seed propagation, vegetative propagation and micropropagation are highlighted in this chapter.
