Description: This paper reports on the techniques of seedling production of Prosopis juliflora used in the semiarid region of Northeastern Brazil. After the harvest of pods, the seed is extracted manually. Seed of P. juliflora will not germinare weel unless their dormancy is overcome by immersion in hot water for three to five minutes. By this process the average germination obtained is above 80 per cent. For seedling production, the plastic bag is the most common contrainer used in the region. Research on propagation by cuttings is bering developed in the region. The best results were obtained with the use of a greenhouse at a temperature of 30 to 35oC and relative humidity of 70 to 80 per cent. Care and management of seedlings in nursery are reported, with incidence of insects and diseases, fertilizer requirements, irrigation, root pruning, and shading.
