Abstract:

An experiment was carried out to know the effect of different seed treatments on seed germination in sarpagandha. The experiment was laid out in completely randomized design with seven treatments, replicated thrice. Among the different seed treatments tested, GA3 (1000 mg L-1) treatment was found to be the best, recording earliness in first and complete germination, highest values for speed of germination (1.37) and germination percentage (50 %). The GA3 treatment resulted in 46.94 per cent reduction in number of days to complete germination, 633.93 per cent increased speed of germination and 354.55 per cent increased germination percentage over the control.
