Germination studies in tephrosia tephrosia villosa l. pers. and tephrosia falciformis ramaswami



Germination studies in tephrosia tephrosia villosa l. pers. and tephrosia falciformis ramaswami



Indian Journal of Botany 9(1): 57-59



The two species of Tephrosia (Fabaceae), T. villosa and T. falciformis, are a source of rotenone insecticides that are used as contact paison. Poor germination, a problem in cultivation, is due to seed coat dormancy. The effect of various pre-treatments on imbibition and germination of seeds were studied. Maximum per cent of germination was obtained with acid scarification in both the species.
