Abstract: The present experiment was conducted during the year 2016-17 at Regional Horticulture Research Station, Navsari Agricultural University, Navsari. The experimental results indicated that media (M3) red soil + FYM + vermicompost (1:1:1) noted greater germination percentage (82.11%), height of seedling at 120, 150 and 180 DAS (29.38 cm, 38.53 cm and 47.00 cm, respectively), number of leaves (22.48, 30.29 and 36.34, respectively) and stem diameter (2.10 mm, 2.70 mm and 3.12 mm, respectively). Whereas, the maximum fresh (17.67 g) and dry weight (10.06 g) of seedling, vigour index- I (3859.66) and II (826.02), highest survival percentage (75.26%) and least mortality percentage (24.73%) was noted in (M3) red soil + FYM + vermicompost (1:1:1) at 180 DAS. Among the foliar spray treatment, (F4) panchagavya @ 3% was significantly improved growth parameter viz., height of seedling at 120, 150 and 180 DAS (29.64 cm, 38.30 cm and 47.32 cm, respectively), number of leaves (22.22, 30.69 and 36.31, respectively) and stem diameter (2.10 mm, 2.73 mm and 3.12 mm, respectively). Likewise the highest fresh (17.97 g) and dry weight (10.02 g) of seedling, vigour index- I (3681.89) and II (778.31), highest survival percentage (75.20%) and least mortality percentage (24.82%) was noted in same foliar spray at 180 DAS. The interaction effect between the media and foliar spray had a significant effect only on height of seedling at 150 and 180 DAS as well as number of leaves at 150 DAS. The maximum height of seedling (42.87 cm) at 150 DAS and 51.90 cm at 180 DAS as well as the highest number of leaves (35.07) at 150 DAS was recorded in treatment (M3F4) red soil + FYM + vermicompost (1:1:1) and Panchagavya @ 3%.
