Abstract:

This study was conducted in the nursery block of experimental orchard, Department of Horticulture, CCS HAU, Hisar to find out suitable scarification treatment for seedling biomass of ber. There were 14 treatments of seed scarification i.e. sulphuric acid soaking for 5 min and 10 min, gibberellic acid soaking @ 250 ppm for 12 and 24 hours, gibberellic acid soaking @ 500 ppm for 12 and 24 hours, potassium nitrate soaking @ 1 percent for 12 and 24 hours, potassium nitrate soaking @ 2 percent for 12 and 24 hours, water soaking for 24 and 48 hours, mechanical scarification and control. The performance of scarification treatments under nursery condition was recorded best in gibberellic acid soaking @ 250 ppm for 24 hours, it resulted into highest fresh weight of roots (8.52g), fresh weight of shoots (24.30g), roots biomass (5.16g) and shoots biomass (11.44g), however, it was recorded lowest in control.


Keywords: Gibberellic acid, Fresh weight, Root and shoot biomass, Scarification, Ziziphus rotundifolia (wild ber).
