Abstract:

All the chemical treatments resulted in significantly higher strawberry seed germination over control. Ethrel 5000 ppm recorded highest germination (86 %) after 30 days of experiment followed by 200 ppm gibberellic acid (84.33 %) and 1000 ppm ethrel (80.67 %). Least germination (19.0 %) was observed in control. H2SO4 36N resulted in maximum in vitro strawberry seed germination and it was statistically at par with H2SO4 30N. Minimum number of days (2.00) to 50 per cent germination was also recorded with 36 N H2SO4. Maximum number of days (7.00) was taken by the lowest concentration of H2SO4.
