Effect of seed size on germination viability and seedling biomass in Pongamia pinnata Pierre

Effect of seed size on germination viability and seedling biomass in Pongamia pinnata Pierre

Van Vigyan 32(1/2): 23-28

Seeds of Pongamia pinnata collected from a 12-yr-old tree at Coimbatore, Tamil Nadu, were graded into large, medium and small sizes and their germination percentage was recorded in different media and at different depths. The best medium was found to be a mixture of sand/soil/humus (1:1:1) and the best depth was 0.5 to 1.0 cm. Large sized seeds germinated better (98%) than medium sized (80%) and small sized seeds (70%) and biomass production was higher in seedlings produced from larger seeds.
