Abstract:
The present investigation entitled “Effect of Polyhouse conditions on germination and seedling growth of Morus alba var. Kokuso”was carried out at Faculty of Forestry, Benihama, Ganderbal J&K.The seedling nursery of Morus specieswas raised in polyhouse as well as under field conditions. Studies conducted on nursery raising of Morus alba varietyKokuso revealed that raising of seedlings under polyhouse conditions were much superior than those grown in field. The performance of seedling nursery in both cases was assessed in terms of various parameters and then put to statistical analysis revealed that there was a highly significant differences in germination percentage, survival percentage, plant height, collar diameter and root length. Germination percentage (88.66%), survival percentage (80.70%), average plant height (24.66 cm), average collar diameter (5.66 mm) and average root length (10.40 cm) was recorded highest in seedlings raised under polyhouse conditions while as germination percentage (67.66%), survival percentage (58.44%), average plant height (17.20 cm), average collar diameter (4.22 mm) and average root length (7.16 cm) was recorded lowest in seedlings raised in open conditions.
