Study of the Effect on Seeds of Trigonella Foenum and Beta Vulgaris; Leafy Vegetables Germination: A Useful Guide for Agricultural Practitioner

Dr. Urmila Sarkar, Sensei Surendra Sawardekar

Germination is the emergence of radical and plumule of seed embryo, resulting in the formation of seedling. A fully developed seed contains an embryo along with food reserves wrapped in a seed coat. Various aspects like water, air, temperature and light or darkness plays a control, key factor necessary for seed germination process. These essential key factors can be explored as natural parameter for seed germination study and a specific parameter utilized can prove to be efficient to break seed dormancy. The present research is focused on consideration of natural parameter of light and dark condition along with a treatment of hot water and Normal unheated water on seeds of Trigonella foenum (Fenugreek) and Beta vulgaris (Palak). Seed germination study under these parameters within the sample and in-between the sample carried by research statistical analysis gives varied results. The efficiency of parameters and treatment; provides apparent potency in breaking seed dormancy without a necessity of seed boosters application in farming practices. The experiment carried develops a useful guide for agricultural practitioner involved in cultivation and production of leafy vegetables.
