Abstract:
The present investigation entitled “Effect of seed treatments, nursery beds and growing media on germination behavior on mango (Mangifera indica L.) cv. Kesar” was carried out at Fruit Research Station, Lalbaug, Junagadh Agricultural University, Junagadh during June -2020 to March -2021. Thirty six treatment combinations arising from four levels of seed treatments (S1: Water soaking, S2: GA3 100 ppm, S3: GA3 200 ppm and S4: GA3 300 ppm), three levels of nursery beds /growing conditions (G1: Raised bed, G2: Sunken bed (poly bag) and G3: Poly bags and three levels of growing media (M1: Soil + FYM, M2: Soil + Sand and M3: Soil + Sand + FYM) were allocated in Completely Randomized Design with factorial concept in three replications.
The result on the effect of seed treatments indicated that GA3 300 ppm executed significantly the minimum days to germinate and the highest germination percentage. The result on the effect of nursery beds (growing conditions) indicated that raised bed executed significantly the lowest days to germinate and the highest germination percentage. The result on the effect of growing media indicated that media mixture of Soil+ Sand +FYM, executed significantly the lowest days to germinate and the highest germination percentage.
Among the interaction effect of different treatment combinations GA3 300 ppm and Raised bed recorded significantly early germination and minimum days taken to germination (16.20 days) and maximum germination percentage (73.60%). Whereas S4M3 GA3 300 ppm and media mixture of Soil+ Sand+ FYM recorded significantly minimum days to germinate (16.38 days) and maximum germination percentage (72.09%). The treatment combination of Raised bed and growing media mixture of Soil+ Sand+ FYM recorded significantly minimum days to germination (17.12 days) and maximum germination percentage (68.59%). Combined effect of all three combinations noted significant result and the S4G1M3 (GA3 300 ppm and Raised bed and Soil+ Sand+ FYM) recorded significantly minimum days taken to germination (16.18 days) and maximum germination percentage (74.82%).
