Effect of various presowing treatments on seed germination of Heracleum candicans Wall. ex DC.: a high value medicinal plant
The paper describes the effect of presowing treatments to improve percentage germination and reduce mean germination time (MGT). Of the various pretreatments tried, 14 days chilling at 4°C significantly (P<0.05) improved percentage germination (88.89%). Upon reducing the chilling duration (7 days) the improvement in germination was accompanied by increase in MGT. The lowest MGT was achieved through KNO3 treatment. Germination response varied significantly (P<0.05) between populations. Possible reasons for such variation is discussed.
