Pre-sowing treatments to improve seed germination and seedling growth of Commiphora swynnertonii (Burrt.) and Synadenium glaucescens (Pax.)

Medicinal and pesticidal plant propagation is hampered by poor seed germination due to seed dormancy. This study aimed to enhance seed germination and seedling growth using various pre-sowing treatments. A triplicated two-factor experiment in a Randomized Complete Block design was used. Soaking in water at 25°C for 24 h (T1), soaking in 60°C hot water for 10 min (T2), 10 ppm Potassium nitrate (KNO3) treatment...
