ABSTRACT

Poor seed germination is the major problem in wide scale cultivation of capers (Capparis ovata var. herbacea). The present study was conducted to examine the role of NAA and GA3 in breaking seed dormancy and determine the extent of their effectivity in seed germination ofC. capparis ovata var. herbacea. The Seeds were initially immersed in warm water (40°C) overnight and treated with HzSO^, for 20 min. These seeds were left out in the germination cabinets, for 28 days by soaking them in 100,250, 500 or 2000 mg/1 of NAA and GA3 each for 1/2, 1,2,6, or 24 h. The highest germination rate of 61% was obtained from the seeds tasated with GA, for 24 h.

Key Words: Capparis ovata; Seed germination; In vitro Abbrevlatloni: NAA-a Naphthalene acetic acid, GAi- Gibbrellic acid, HiSO.. Sulphuric acid
