The effect of decortication of seed on germination and the number of nucellar seedlings of some mango cultivars in Ghana


, : The effect of decortication of seed on germination and the number of nucellar seedlings of some mango cultivars in Ghana. Acta Horticulturae (49): 95-97

Germination reached 100% by the 18th day in decorticated seeds of 5 cvs but only 69 - 86% (depending on cv.) by the 32nd day in undecorticated controls.
