Abstract:

The present experiment was carried out at Horticultural Research Farm, Department of Horticulture, B. A. College of Agriculture, AAU, Anand during the year 2017-18 with the objective to study effect of different seed treatment on growth parameters of Karonda. The Experiment was laid out in completely randomized design involved11 different seed treatments including control. Among various treatments applied, Seeds soaked in cow dung slurry for 24 hours recorded maximum seed germination (62.67%), Seedling vigour index-I (1744) and seedling vigour index-II (74.25). Length of tap root at 60 and 90 DAS (13.80 and 17.07 cm, respectively) was also observed maximum with the same treatment. While, seeds soaked in GA3 100 mg/l for 24 hours improved various growth parameters viz., seedling length (16.15, 24.05 and 28.43 cm), number of leaves per seedling (10.67, 18.53 and 27.60) at 30, 60 and 90 DAS, number of primary roots(27.07 and 34.67) and secondary roots (32.67 and 38.67) at 60 and 90 DAS and fresh as well as dry weight of seedling (3.12 and 1.20 g, respectively) at 90 DAS. While, seeds soaked in GA3 150 mg/l for 24 hours gave significantly maximum diameter of seedling (2.02 and 2.29 mm) at 60 and 90 DAS.
