Effect of different pre-treatments on germination and seedling development of Monodora myristica (Gaertn.) Dunal. seeds



Effect of different pre-treatments on germination and seedling development of Monodora myristica (Gaertn.) Dunal. seeds



Forests, Trees and Livelihoods 12(3): 221-228



Monodora myristica seeds were subjected to different pre-treatments viz.: various temperature ranges in the oven, immersion in boiling water and chemical treatments. Chemical treatment with H2SO4 for 10 minutes, alcohol treatment with methanol for 10 minutes and immersing the seeds in boiling water (100 degrees C) for 30 minutes resulted in high germination percentages - 72, 68 and 67% respectively, all with high numbers of seeds in the high vigour categories.
