Abstract:
An experiment was conducted to see the effect of different chemicals and physical treatments on germination and seedling vigour of chironji (Buchanania lanzan Spreng.). Result revealed that minimum number of days (29.18 days) for seed germination, number of days for 50 per cent seed germination(36.02 days), maximum germination percentage after 30 days(2%), and germination index (0.94%) were observed in treatment T7 (mechanical scarification breaking of seed coat through hammering) and treatment T5 (soaking in GA3 250 ppm for 24 hrs.) was recorded the maximum value of survival percentage(62.92%), seedling height(6.38 and 9.79 cm), number of leaves per plant(4.11 and 6.16), leaf area(16.75 and 24.07 cm2), collar diameter (0.18 and 0.29 cm), root length(9.63 and 12.73 cm) at 60 and 90 DAS, respectively. Similarly maximum fresh shoot weight (7.18 g), fresh root weight (3.8 g), shoot and root ratio (0.93), dry shoot weight (4.66 g), dry root weight (1.86 g) and seedling vigour index (682.07) was also notice in treatment T5 (soaking in GA3 250 ppm for 24 hrs.) at 90 DAS.
