Neolamarckia cadamba is a fast growing multipurpose indigenous tree. It has the potential in the fodder contribution of agroforestry component. Owing to its importance, the performance of twenty-five genetic resources were analyzed for growth attributes and Leaf attributes. The growth attributes include basal diameter, height, number of Branches and the leaf traits includes leaf length, leaf width, leaf petiole length, total number of leaves, leaf area. While considering the growth and leaf attributes, three clones viz., AC 15, AC 17 and AC 16 proved its superiority at the periodic intervals of 3 MAP and 6 MAP. It can be further utilized for future improvement program in Neolamarckia cadamba genetic resources based on the growth and leaf characters.

Key words: Neolamarckia cadamba, Clonal variation, Growth attributes, Leaf traits, Leaf area
