Abstract:

A systematic study was undertaken to determine the best pre sowing treatments for seed germination and seedling growth of walnut. The germination and seedling growth of walnut improved with combine application of all pre sowing treatments. Cracking + gibberellic acid @ 500 ppm + stratification for 30 days showed highest germination percentage and early germination was obtained under the treatment combination of cracking, gibberellic acid @ 750 ppm with stratification for 30 days. Highest shoot height, shoot diameter, number of leaves per plant, root length, root area, shoot fresh weight, root fresh weight, total fresh weight and survival percentage were recorded with hot water + gibberellic acid @ 500 ppm + stratification for 30 days. Thus, the results of present investigation reveal that it is combination of different pre sowing treatments was found effective in improving the germination and growth of walnut seedlings as compared to the control.


Keywords: walnut, Gibberellic acid, Stratification, Cracking, Hotwater.
