Abstract:
The present study was carried out to investigate the effect of pre-sowing treatments on seedling growth of guava (Psidium guajava L.).The experiment comprised of 13 different pre-sowing treatments with three replications. The results from the study revealed that pre-sowing treatments significantly influenced seedling growth of guava as among different pre-sowing treatments, Scraping of seed coat with sand paper + seeds soaked in GA3 200ppm for 24 hours (T5) performed best in terms of height of seedling (4.59cm), shoot length (6.75cm), root length (5.85cm), root: shoot ratio (0.87), number of leaves per seedling (12.40), leaf area of seedling (3.83cm2) and total chlorophyll content (29.85 SPAD unit). Whereas, Girth of seedling was found maximum (1.34mm) in quick dip soaking in 30 sulphuric acid T8(i).
