  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.

  The phenology, seed germination, seedling development and evaluation were carried out on the seeds of Hura cepitans. The phenological data describes Hura crepitans seeds as 0.94 g in weight, 2.3x2.2x.48 cm in size; 3.6 cm3 mean volume, of 78% moisture level. The capsule of length 8 cm contains 7-16 seeds. The seeds are circular in shape, smooth, glabrous and glossy in texture with a capsule depth of 2.5 cm and a brownish testa. The plant flowers and fruits from the end of October to the end of June. To break dormancy, investigations on the stimulatory effect of chemical scarifications were analyzed. Methanol pre-treatment recorded the highest of 70% germination. Comparatively, some of the pretreatments showed better germination energy and vigour than the control. Such pretreatments are good for germination and nursery establishment of the species.

The results obtained on analysis of the seeds and pods of Sterculia setigera for their nutritional composition revealed that while the seed sample has high crude protein, crude fibre, carbohydrate and fat contents, their contents in the pod sample was very low. The analysis of the mineral profile reveals that the seed of Sterculia setigera is rich in sodium, iron, zinc and manganese. Conversely, the mineral composition of the pod is low.
