Abstract:
An experiment was carried out in the Department of Forestry, Uttar Banga Krishi Viswavidyalaya, Cooch Behar to study the influence of different pre-sowing treatments on seed germination of bakul (Mimusops elengi L.), an evergreen tree species belonging to family Sapotaceae. The present experiment was focused on the pre-sowing treatments for breaking dormancy of this species which hindered germination by the presence of a hard seed coat comprising of nine treatments and three replications following randomized block design. Among the different pre-sowing treatments, 0.5% thiourea and 1% potassium nitrate recorded maximum germination percentage (85%). Least mean germination time (30.96 days) was also found in seeds treated with 0.5% thiourea.
