Standardizing the Methods for Breaking Seed Dormancy to Enhance Germination of Gloriosa superba Seeds

Studies on imposing seed germination in glory lily revealed that the seeds scarifies by GA3 treatment method was recorded to be the best treatment with maximum germination of 17.6 ± 1.2 seeds within a minimum time interval. Treatments of GA3 not only break the seed dormancy, but also promote the growth of plant. So, the seed treatment can be recommended as a nursery practice. The aim of this study was to enhance the germination rate of G. superba seeds which have a very low germination rate under normal conditions. Chemical scarification was very efficient in breaking dormancy and promoting germination.
