The effect of various pre-sowing treatments on seed germination of Arctium lappa L. was investigated. Arctium lappa belongs to the Asteraceae and is an important medicinal plant of Western Himalayas. The seeds possess both physical and physiological dormancy. Scarification with 50% H2SO4 for 3 min followed by pre-soaking in GA3 500 ppm for 24 hrs was found to be most effective in relieving dormancy and enhancing germination to 81 per cent.
