Effect of Pre-sowing treatments on seed germination of Syzgium cumini (L.) skeels

Abstract : Seed germination studies were performed in Syqgium cumini (L.) Skeels. (Myrtaceae). Seed viability, seed germination in response to various pre-sowing treatments and polyembryony were studied. Seeds stored at low temperature showed 100 % viability for about 4 months. Acid (H~SO4) scarification for 10 min duration results in better germination percentage both in diffused light and dark conditions. Production of multiple shoots was observed. Polyembryony in this native multipurpose tree can be utilized in plant breeding techniques and in turn used for various reclamation programmes.
