Abstract:

An experiment was conducted to standardize the seed germination technique in Aristolochia tagala Cham. at the Division of Floriculture and medicinal crops, ICAR- Indian Institute of Horticulture, Bengaluru during 2019-20. Fresh seeds of A. tagalawere collected from the Field Gene Bank of RET medicinal plants, IIHR Bengaluru and different treatments such as GA3, KNO3, Thiourea and water soaking was imposed on it. The maximum germination percent (70.57%) was obtained from treatment with thiourea (2.0 %), which was on par (67.33%) with water soaking treatment. The maximum shoot length (15.13 cm), root length (6.40 cm), plant height (21.53 cm), fresh weight of the seedling (726.33 mg/plant), dry weight of seedling (72.90 mg/plant) and seedling vigour index I (1433.52) was recorded in water soaking for 30 minutes.
