The investigation was carried under nursery conditions with the aim to assess the rate of seed germination. The individual effect of seed size, seed colour and sowing depth was found with the maximum values for germination per cent in large sized (43.89%), dark brown colour seeds (39.44%) when sown at depth 1cm (47.04%), whereas for germination capacity the maximum value was obtained in large sized (59.44%), dark brown colour seeds (53.33%) when sown at depth 1cm (67.04%). Similar trend was

It was found that effect of interaction for large size (S 1) dark brown colour seeds (C 2) sown 1cm deep (D 1) significantly excelled over other categories in terms of germinability parameter viz., number days for initiation of germination (14.67 days) .
