Abstract:

The experiment was conducted at Dr YS Parmar University of Horticulture and Forestry, Nauni, Solan. The seeds were graded into small (L1), medium (L2) and large size (L3) on the basis of length. The seeds subjected to seven pre sowing treatments were sown in potting mixture consisting of soil, sand and FYM in four different ratios. The experiment was laid out in nursery conditions in randomized block design (RBD factorial) with three replications to determine most suitable seed size, pre sowing treatment and potting mixture for seedling growth parameters of Parkia roxburghii. It was evident from the study that large size seeds (L3) excelled all other grades in all seedling growth parameters. The seeds treated with boiling water and soaking for 24 hrs (T5) registered significantly maximum seedling growth parameters. The seeds sown in potting mixture consisting of soil, sand and FYM in ratio 1:2:4 (M4) registered significantly maximum seedling growth parameters.


Keywords: Seed size, Potting mixture, Pre sowing treatment, Seedling growth.
