Effect of different treatments to hasten tree seed germination



Effect of different treatments to hasten tree seed germination



Pakistan Journal of Forestry 30(4): 176-180



Seeds of (a) Melia azedarach, (b) Zizyphus mauritiana and (c) Cassia fistula were set to germinate after treatment with H2SO4 for 10-30 min, with cow dung for 10 days, or with boiling water ((c) only). After 2 wk cow dung treatment gave best germination of (a) and (b). In (a) 82 out of 100 seeds germinated (76 in control) and in (b) 76 (control, 45). Acid treatment killed embryos of (b).
