Abstract

Author(s): MN. Mhaiskar

In the present paper 93 plant species belonging to 43 families of cultivated plant species have been recorded from Hinganghat taluka of Wardha district. These families include Fabaceae with dominant with 22 species followed by Poaceae and Cucurbitaceae (7), Umbellifeare (5), Solanaceae (5), Rutaceae (4), Liliaceae (4), Brassicaceae (3), Apocyanaceae (2), Zingiberaceae (2), Chenopodiaceae (2), Malvaceae (2), Anacardiaceae (2), Nyctaginaceae (2) Convolulaceae (1), Amaranthaceae (1), Pedaliaceae (1), Vitaceae (1), Annonaceae (1), Myrtaceae (1), Rhamanaeceae (1), Cariaceae (1), Puniaceae (1), Sapotaceae (4), Acanthaceae (1), Labiatae (1), Verbenaceae (1), Lythraceae (1), Asteraceae (1), Moraceae (1), Nymphaceae (1). Rosaceae (1), Moringaceae (1), Casurinaceae (1), Tiliaceae (1), Linaceae (1), Portulacaceae (1) and Arecaceae (1). Plant species are herbs, shrubs, trees and climbers. People depend on plants for food, clothes, shelter and medicine. These species are very useful for human welfare and hence monitors and controlling is necessary. The non-native plant species acclimatize in Indian environment. The process of acclimatization of cultivated plants to the soil environment has fully been survived.
