Effect of Various Hormones on the Germination of Fonio-Digitarie exilis L.

M. Idu, J.U. Chokor and O. Timothy    

Abstract: The present study embodies data on the seed morphometrics and effect of five hormones viz., thiourea, gibberellin, coumarin, 1-naphthalene acetic acid and Indole butyric acid on the germination of Digitaria exilis. The hormonal treatment was carried out under different concentrations, time regimes and continuous light and dark conditions. The highest percentage germination (78%) was recorded in seeds treated with Thiourea (0.01 mg L-1) for 15 min and 0.0001 mg L-1 for 60 min under continuous dark condition while lowest percentage germination (25%) was recorded in seeds treated with 1-naphthalene acetic acid (0.001 mg L-1) for 60 min under continuous light condition.
