Abstract:

Azadirachta indica commonly known as neem belong to the family of Meliaceae. It is a valuable medicinal tropical tree species with many uses. Germination of neem seed is in the initial circumstance critical step in afforestation programmes or naturally conditions, Neem seed having short viability it’s a kind of recalcitrant seeds so that is the problem in introducing neem to new locations. Fresh seeds germinate very soon, but within week’s germination rates begin dropping off because seeds have low moisture content. This poses logistical difficulties for any tree-planting or improvement. Experiment was carried out at Nursery of Guru Ghasidas Central University Bilaspur Chhattisgarh, Germination percentage of among seed sources was recorded in Naryanpura gave maximum germination percentage (94.33%), where seed soaked with water, while minimum value of germination percentage was recorded from Dhamatari (85.89%). Where in the control there was no treatment recorded germination percentage in Bilaspur (91.00 %), while the minimum value of germination percentage was recorded from Dhamatari (83.00%). Seed sources of Bilaspur gave maximum Seedling vigor index (SVI) (3744.27) while minimum Seedling vigor index (SVI)was recorded from Bijapur (2885.74), Where in the control there was no treatment recorded highest Seedling vigor index (SVI) Bilaspur (3854.76), while minimum Seedling vigor index (SVI) was recorded from Pendra (2979.07), Seed sources of Bilaspur gave maximum Drupe weight (169.36g ), where lowest Drupe weight was recorded Balod (142.34g), Seed sources of Bilaspur gave maximum Drupe weight without pulp (60.46g ), where lowest Drupe weight without pulp was recorded Balod (52.41g), Seed sources of Bilaspur gave maximum Moisture content (16.91%), where lowest Moisture content was recorded Bemetera (13.51 %) was recorded Significant variations (CD=0.05).
