Basrah Journal For Date Palm Research,
Volume 4, Issue 1, Pages 124-131
AbstractThis study was carried out in date palm research center – Basrah Univ. during
cultivation season 2004. to study content of some date palm parts(leaflets, fiber, frond
midrib, fruit stalks and frond bases) of two cultivars Hillawi and Barhi from lignin
The result explained there is no significant difference between the studied cultivars of
their content of lignin and cellulose. Also the result showed the highest content of
lignin appear in frond bases it had (37.63%) with significant difference of other
studied parts, and no significant difference between the leaflets and frond midrib and
also no significant difference among leaflets, fiber and fruit stalks.
Also didn’t appear significant difference of interactions.
Also the result showed the highest content of cellulose in fiber it had (48.93%)
without significant difference of frond bases it had (47.28%), and no significant
difference between leaflets and frond midrib, the lowest content of cellulose appear
in fruit stalks it had (30.32%) with significant difference of other studied parts.
To interactions the highest content of cellulose appear in frond bases in Hillawi
cultivars it had (52.71%) without significant difference of fiber of two studied
cultivars. While a lowest content appear in fruit stalks in Barhi cultivars it had
