Karonda is propagated through seeds, cuttings, graftings, air layering and stooling. The seeds of karonda are quite hard and having low germination percent, but it is propagated through seeds. Considering the constraints of low seed germination percentage the trail was undertaken at K.R.C. College of Horticulture, Arabhavi during 2016-2017 to study the effect of different chemical treatment along with water soaking treatment. Among the different treatments maximum percent of germination (83.30) was observed with water soaking treatment for eight hours. Control treatment recorded lowest percent of germination (63.30).
