The experiment was conducted at the Lal-baugh farm, Fruit research station, Department of Horticulture, Junagadh Agricultural University, Junagadh (Gujarat) during 2016. The experiment was laid out in Complete Randomized Design (CRD) with three repetitions and twelve pre-soaking treatments.The treatment of GA3 200 mg/l, recorded significantly the minimum days taken to first germination (21.93 days) and higher percentage of germination (78.33%) and root length (24.01 cm) at 180 DAS. In case of fresh weight of root (0.79 g) at 180 DAS and dry weight of root (0.46 g) at 180 DAS, as well as higher survival percentage (78.33%).
