Effect of natural ageing on germination and seedling vigour of teak (Tectona grandis Linn. F.) drupes






Indian Journal of Forestry 25(1/2): 122-126

Effect of natural ageing on germination and seedling vigour of teak (Tectona grandis Linn. F.) drupes

A study was conducted to determine the effect of natural aging on the germination and seedling vigour of fresh, one- and two-year-old teak (Tectona grandis) drupes (fruit with seed). The fresh, one- and two-year-old drupes, allowed for germination under open and mist chamber conditions following soaking and drying of drupes for 6 days at an interval of 12 h, recorded 8, 37 and 51% and 3, 40 and 50% germination, respectively.
