Abstract:
The results of present investigation revealed that among the different pre-sowing treatments, GA3 @ 150 mg l-1 was found to be most beneficial for improving germination percent (80.77%) and took minimum days for germination (16.73). Similar trend was observed on growth parameters such as number of leaves (7.80, 14.33, 17.93), height of seedling (7.28, 15.07, 28.18 cm), stem diameter (0.87, 2.22, 2.75 mm), primary root length (6.72 cm), number of secondary roots (26.40), fresh weight of shoot (14.21 g), dry weight of shoot (5.97 g), fresh weight of root (1.94 g), dry weight of root (1.12 g), shoot: root ratio (7.32) and survival percentage (75.00%).
