Abstract:

Seed size is an important characteristic of seed quality as seed size has been shown to affect germination rate, emergence rate, seed vigour, success of establishment, and growth. The seed size and pre sowing treatments often controls the germination and initial seedling growth in many tree species. A wide array of different effect of seed size and pre sowing treatment has been reported for seed germination in many tree species. Generally, large seeds size gave maximum germination than the small seeds. Pre-sowing treatment methods are employed for overcoming seed dormancy in many species. Pre-sowing treatments are used not only to ensure the rapid germination but it also decreases labour, cost and time for nursery production.


Keywords: Seed size, Pre sowing, Germination.
