Abstract:
The results of present investigation revealed that among the different organic treatments, panchgavya were found to be most beneficial for improving germination percent (90.03%) and took minimum days for germination (10.16). Similar trend was observed on growth parameters such as height of seedling (4.20, 10.24,15.01 cm), number of leaves(4.56, 7.30, 11.25), stem girth (15.65 mm), leaf area (46.00 cm2), length of tap root (10.77 cm), number of roots per seedling(18.58), root/shoot ratio(1.92), fresh weight of seedling (6.69 g), dry weight of seedling (1.58 g), survival percentage(84.21%) and minimized mortality percentage(15.62%).
