Abstract

To determine the association between Jojoba seed yield and climatic factors, climatic data over
thirteen years were analyzed in relation to seed yield of Jojoba raised at the experimental plot on
coastal sand dune at Zanjmer site of CSMCRI, Bhavnagar (India). Seed yield of Jojoba was positively
correlated (r = 0.271) and was influenced heavily by maximum air temperature as compared to
other climatic factors. The relationship was more pronounced during the seed setting phase. Wind
velocity, soil temperature and sunshine hour also had positive relationship with the yield of Jojoba.
Rainfall during the month of September had positive correlation (r = 0.580) with the seed yield

Keywords
