Abstract

The results revealed that, GA3 50 ppm recorded significantly more seed yield (33.96 g) per
plant, germination (75.52%), root length (7.81 cm), shoot length (6.86 cm), seedling vigour index
(1297) and seedling dry weight (14.12 mg) compared to NAA 40 ppm and control (30.97 g, 71.89%,
7.38 cm, 6.28 cm, 859 and 12.39 mg, respectively) irrespective of growth, 4 fruit retention per plant
recorded significantly highest germination, root length, shoot length, seedling vigour index and
seedling dry weight (83.28%, 8.43 cm, 7.48 cm, 1136 and 16.85 mg, re respectively) compared to
retention of all fruits per plant
