Abstract:
A research project was envisaged to standardised a stratification technique for better seed germination and to produced a uniform rootstock for cultivation of pistachio.Seed were immersed in different solutions of KNO3 1 per cent, MS salt, GA3 1 ppm, normal water and control (no treatment), for 12, 24, 36 and 48 hours duration before sowing in pots. It was found that KNO3 at 1 per cent solution treated seeds significantly completed early germination in 135 days and increased the germination percentage to 26 per cent when soaked for 24 hours. Lengthy seedling of wild Pistachio (39.50 cm) was noted in the same solution for 24 hours immersion. Diameter of the seedling was pronounced in the above chemical at 1 per cent level of concentration.
