Abstract: An experiment was carried out to study the effect of seed treatment and foliar spray of chemical substances on seedling growth of jamun at Regional Horticultural Research Station, ASPEE College of Horticulture and Forestry, Navsari Agricultural University, Navsari during 2016-2017. Among the seed treatments, GA3 @ 200 mg l-l for 10 min (S4) recorded the maximum seedling height (82.60 cm), number of leaves (42.63), stem diameter (7.90 mm), number of shoots/seedling (2.95), leaf area (86.30 cm2), root: shoot ratio (3.21), primary root length (43.04 cm), number of secondary roots (46.36), fresh and dry weight of seedling (104.20 and 40.63 g), fresh and dry weight of root (23.93 and 10.16 g) and minimum days to reach graftable size (151.12). Among the foliar spray of chemical substances, the maximum seedling height (92.26 cm), number of leaves (49.90), stem diameter (8.00 mm), number of shoots/seedling (3.30), leaf area (87.84 cm2), root: shoot ratio (3.35), primary root length (45.77 cm), number of secondary roots (49.37), fresh and dry weight of seedling (114.60 and 44.76 g), fresh and dry weight of root (24.69 and 10.39 g) and minimum days to reach graftable size (136.70) was recorded in GA3 @ 200 mg l­­­-l (F2). In interaction (S4F2) jamun seedlings raised from seeds treated with GA3 @ 200 mg l-l for 10 min and sprayed with GA3 @ 200 mg l­­­-l recorded maximum seedling height (95.89 cm), number of leaves (52.53), stem diameter (8.63 mm), number of shoots/seedling (3.60), root: shoot ratio (3.64), number of secondary roots (54.11), fresh and dry weight of seedling (126.65 and 49.39 g), fresh and dry weight of root (28.31 and 12.18 g) and minimum days to reach graftable size (128.47).
