Abstract:
A field experiment was carried out at College nursery, N. M. College of Agriculture, Navsari Agricultural University, Navsari during 2015-2016 to study the effect of husking (removing seed tip) and pre-soaking treatments on germination and seedling growth of mango cv. Alphonso. The experiment was laid out in completely randomized design (CRD) with factorial concept. The results revealed that unhusked seed soaked in cow dung slurry, KNO3 @ 1%, KCL @ 1% and sucrose solution @ 1% proved to be the best with respect to germination % and survival %. When the husked seed (removing seed tip) dipped in KH2PO4 @ 1% and sucrose solution @ 1% observed maximum germination % and survival %. While, H1P1 (husked mango seed dipped in water) treatment reported minimum days taken for germination (10.15 days), optimum height of plant (61.80 cm) and maximum number of leaves (21.80) at 6 MAS. The seedling diameter was maximum in treatment H1P5 (husked mango seed dipped in 1 % KCL) at 6 MAS.
