Estimation of total phenolic and total flavonoids in pollen grain of some cultivars of date palm (Phoenixdactylifera L.)

Abstract

This study was conducted in private orchard in Abu Alkhaseeb district Basrah.Six male date palm cultivars, three of which cultivars seeded (male seeded strain 1, male seeded strain 2 and male seeded strain 3) and three cultivars are known, namely,(Red Ghannami green and Red Ghannami and Alkhri) were selected .Results showed superiority of both extract (aqueous and alcoholic) for strain seeded 3 in contained of phenolic compounds and flavonoids . As showed the cluster analysis distributed cultivars studied the into two groups depending on the content of phenolic and Flavonoids compounds for both aqueous and alcoholic extracts.
