Resumo


The objective of this study was to investigate the morphology of seeds of different genotypes of Jatropha curcas L., due to the little existing literature regarding the biometric aspects of the seeds of this species. The experimental design was completely randomized in a simple, 15 levels of genotypes (Diamantina, Tominaga, Paradise, Jales, CNPAE - C2, CNPAE - 171, G - 2, AGE, 167, 200, 210, 315, 316 , 1501 and 8001) with four replications. The evaluations were made with portions of 100 seeds for each repetition, measuring the variables measured in mm in width (WIS), length in mm (LES) and seed weight of 100 g (WES) of seeds of Jatropha curcas L. Overall, for the 15 genotypes of Physic nut was investigated the formation of three distinct groups of averages for the biometric variables, highlighting the genotypes Paraiso and Jales and access CNPAE - C2 and AGE.
