Abstract

Aims/ Objectives: Effect of soil propagation media and bio-fertilizers on seedling germination and seedling vigour in Aonla.

Study Design: Completely Randomized Block Design.

Place and Duration of Study: Research Field, Department of Fruit Science, College of Horticulture, Mandsaur, Madhya Pradesh during 20th February 2021 to 05th April 2021.

Methodology: The experiment was laid out using Completely Randomized Block Design with 18 different combinations of growing media. In the preparation of media and filling of polybags the soil was sieved and mixed FYM, Vermicompost and Neemcake in the ratio of 1:1:1:1 then added the bio-fertilizers.

Results: In this study we found that treatment GM18- Soil + Neemcake + Vermicompost + FYM + Rhizobium + Trichoderma spp. @ 2.5 g  found minimum days taken to seed germination (10.00 days), maximum number of seedlings sprouted (13.32), maximum survival percent (81.03%), maximum germination percentage (94.54%), maximum seedling height (8.94 cm), maximum number of leaves per plant (7.27), maximum leaf area (17.80 cm2),maximum fresh weight of shoot (4.34 g), maximum dry weight of shoot (2.21 g), maximum length of roots (7.21 cm), maximum diameter of roots (1.05 mm), maximum fresh weight of roots (1.04 g), maximum dry weight of root (0.44 g), maximum speed of germination (7.56), maximum mean daily germination (3.53), maximum peak value (1.33), maximum germination value (4.68).

Conclusion: On the basis of results obtained in present investigation it is concluded that treatment GM18 (Soil + Neemcake + Vermicompost + FYM + Rhizobium + Trichoderma spp. @ 2.5 g) was found to be the best for seed germination characters and seedling vigour characters.

Directions of Further Use: The experiment should be done with different concentrations of growth regulator to find the best combination.

Keywords: Aonla, bio-fertilizers, germination, media and propagation
