Abstract:

The laboratory experiments conducted were to study effects of scarification and stratification on breaking dormancy of okra (Abelmoschus esculentus L.). during kharif season 2017-18. At the seed testing laboratory, Department of Genetics and Plant Breeding, Naini Agricultural Institute SHUATS, Allahabad, (UP). The design applied statistical analysis was carried out with Complete Randomized Design (CRD) with 9 treatments and 4 replication. The study show that seed treatment with, H2SO4 Scarification 3 min. for 80% (T9) recorded higher and followed by Hot water stratification 12hr for 35℃ germination percent, speed of germination, shoot length, root length, seedling fresh and dry weight, vigour index I and II, it was the best treatment.
