IN my previous work1,2, I have explained the parabolic growth-variation as noticed in the sizes of the successive leaves, internodes, flowers, fruits and seeds formed from time to time during a season, stressing the importance of this knowledge for the selection of better planting material. The influence of the robustness of seed or planting material on the progeny and yield has been sufficiently stressed by many3. I have applied this method successfully to the cultivation of sugar-cane, rice, cotton, mulberry, turmeric and many other plants on an experimental scale, and feel that this could be applied with advantage to the cultivation of most plants.
