Impact of pre-sowing seed treatments on germination and seedling growth of different fruit crops: A review
Pooja GK and Honnabyraiah MK
Seed germination is the resumption of active growth of embryo that results in the emergence of the young plant. Seeds of many fruit crops remain ungerminated even under favourable conditions. Such kind of dormancy in seeds may be due to presence of hard and impermeable seed coat, germination inhibitors or due to improper development of embryo. Such seeds may require special treatments like scarification, soaking in water, growth regulators and chemical treatments etc. in order to overcoming dormancy. This review summarizes the effect of pre sowing seed treatment on seed germination and seedling growth of different fruits crops.
