Abstract:

The experiment was conducted to study the effect of different pre-sowing treatment and tetrazolium viability test in seeds of Phoebe goalparensis Hutch. subjected to completely randomized design with eight treatments and four replications carried out in the laboratory and nursery bed in research field of Department of Silviculture and Agroforestry, College of Horticulture and Forestry, Pasighat, Arunachal Pradesh. Significant differences in germination were observed across the treatments. The study revealed that that highest germination percentage in lab (81.5%) and nursery bed (70.0%) was recorded in treatment T8 (depulped, nicking and overnight soaking in 0.05% gibberellic acid) significantly enhanced seed germination. The tetrazolium test for stained viable seeds (84.33%) approached amicable value with the highest germination percentage recorded in T8 that can be used as a rapid and effective method in seed testing. Economical production of seedling by adopting pre-sowing treatments of depulped, sun drying for 8 hours (T4) or depulped, soaking in ambient water for 24 hrs (T5) could be used for cultivation of P. goalparensis seedling.
