Abstract:

Tamarind (Tamarindus indica L.), or Imli is also called Indian Date. It belongs to the family Leguminaceae. Tamarind is traditionally propagated from seed. Tamarind seeds exhibit poor germination percentage even if exposed to favourable conditions of germination owing to seed dormancy. Keeping in view, the present investigation was conducted during kharif season of 2017 at the horticulture nursery, College of Agriculture, Gwalior. In the present study seeds were imposed to twelve different treatments i.e. T0 Control (Soaking in distilled water), T1 GA3 @ 100 ppm, T2 GA3 @ 200 ppm, T3 GA3 @ 300 ppm, T4 NAA @ 100 ppm for 24 hr, T5 NAA @ 200 ppm, T6 NAA @ 300 ppm, T7 Acid Scarification (HCL 10%), T8 Cow urine 5%, T9 Cow Urine 10%, T10 Cow Urine 20%, T11 Cow Dung Slurry for 24hr and in acid 30min. The minimum days taken to start germination (5.27), maximum percentage of germination at 30 days (86.67%) was recorded significantly under T2 GA3 @ 200 ppm. But survival percentage of seedlings after 150 days (94.67%) was found not significant. The minimum days taken to 50% germination (15.67) were recorded under T3 GA3 @ 300 ppm.
