Abstract

An attempt has been made to analyze the effect of sowing depth of soil on seed germination of Butea frondosa. The results reveals that the seed sown at 2 cm depth of soil gave better seed germination followed by D2 (2cm) depth of soil. A gradual decrease in the percentage of seed germination was found with an increase of depth of sowing. It is very clear that seeds of Butea frondosa should be sown at 2 cm depth of soil to obtain the maximum seedling of Butea frondosa.
