Abstract:

In order to study the effect of seed treatment on germination and seedling growth of jamun an experiment was carried out at Regional Horticultural Research Station, ASPEE College of Horticulture and Forestry, Navsari Agricultural University, Navsari during 2016-2017. The experiment was laid out in completely randomised block design with three repetitions and six treatments consists of control (S1), water soaking for 24 hrs (S2), hot water (100 0C) for 5 sec (S3), GA3 @ 200 mg l-l for 10 min (S4), KNO3 @ 0.5 % for 10 min (S5) and thiourea @ 0.5 % for 10 min (S6). Among different treatments jamun seeds soaked in water for 24 hrs (S2) found better for days for initiation of germination (7.13) and germination percentage (95.73 %) whereas, maximum height (82.60 cm), number of leaves (42.63) and stem diameter (7.90 mm) of seedling was recorded in GA3 @ 200 mg l-1 for 10 min (S4).
