Abstract:

Experiment on effect of growth regulators and chemicals on germination of surinam cherry (Eugenia uniflora L.) seeds was carried out in the college of Horticulture Mysuru during the year 2017-18. The experiment was done with completely randomized design having eight treatments with three replications. Among the different treatment seeds which were water soaked over-night (T2) took minimum number of days for early germination (18.33 days), complete germination (43.00 days) and fifty per cent germination (25.00 days). GA3 treatment at 500 ppm (T4) for 30 minutes showed maximum germination percentage (100.00 %), survivability percentage (87.50 %) and vegetative growth parameters like seedling height, number of leaves and seedling girth at 60 and 120 days after transplanting.
