Hormonal Effect on Germination and Seedling Development of Hura crepitans Seeds

M. Idu, C.A. Omonhinmin and H.I. Onyibe    

Abstract: To establish propagation test and nursery establishment protocols for Hura crepitans , Various concentrations and timing regimes were performed on the seeds of Hura crepitans using growth hormones; Thiourea, Gibberellic acid and Coumain. Gibberellic acid pretreated seeds recorded high cumulative germination (100%) and germination energy (95%). Similarly, high percentages were recorded for Thiourea. However, Coumarin showed poor germination as well as recorded high percentage of abnormal seedlings (90%), a poor option for nursery establish of Hura crepitans. Ranked mean for the germinated seedlings was significant at p<0.05 for Thiourea and Gibberellic acid treatments.
